The North America Railway Hall of Fame is a not-for-profit charitable organization housed in the recently restored Canada Southern Railway Station in St.Thomas, Ontario. Once known as the Railway Capital of Canada, St.Thomas is rich with historical significance for both the locals as well as the country of Canada and North America as a whole. The Hall of Fame was founded in 1996 to maintain, preserve and honor this railway history through the induction into the Hall of Fame of people, events, structures, railway art forms, rolling stock, technical innovations, railway workers and trains, and inventions in the railway industry. Induction ceremonies have taken place in 1999, 2001, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014. Our goal is to educate the public about the impact of railway transportation on North America as a whole as well as on Canada specifically, and on St.Thomas in particular. The Hall of Fame, which is located on the 2nd floor of the station, was officially opened in September 2013.
