About the Museum:

The Dauphin Rail Museum houses over 100 years of artifacts pertaining to the rail service in the region. There are lamps, tools, pictures of the restoration of the station, a motor car (jigger), an HO model rail, and a geographic display of steam/diesel era (1954 - 1965). There is also a PSC Caboose and a roundhouse & amp; turntable (one of the few left in Canada). The Museum tells the history of the railway for the area, the Canadian Northern Railway and later Canadian National Railway. The Museum is looking for donations of relevant artifacts for the museum's collection.
