Welcome    The Canadian Hall of Fame


The Hall of Fame project uses modern electronic Web-based technology in developing a virtual hall of fame which is truly nation-wide — indeed international — in scope. Through this universal communication medium, the Hall of Fame is accessible to interested parties wherever they may be, bringing the railway industry’s history and message into schools, institutions, and private homes.

Canada is a country in which the railway has played a significant historic role in its development as a nation. However, the railways continue to quietly play a huge role in the economy of our country — moving goods and raw materials to export and to market — at record traffic levels. Therefore part of the Hall of Fame’s goal is to help enhance public awareness not only of the industry’s rich history, but of its current importance to Canadian and world markets. It also serves to acknowledge achievement in the industry.

In addition to this on-line Hall of Fame, an outdoor pavilion has been developed that features the inductees at the historic village of Big Valley, Alberta. Big Valley is already the site of significant railway and local heritage preservation, and the Canadian Railway Hall of Fame naturally complements these efforts.

Pavilion Hours of Operation: The Hall of Fame Pavilion, being outdoor, is available for access daily by the public during daylight hours, year round.
