Back to the Future at Exporail this Fall


Exporail, the Canadian Railway Museum invites the public to the third edition of Back to the Future at Exporail, an event intended for a wide audience on Sunday, September 22nd, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Exporail Team and the visitors will celebrate the return of the John Molson steam engine. This 1850 locomotive replica has run at the Museum for over 50 years. Thanks to a generous donation from Molson Coors, we have been able to carry out major restoration work on her, and the public will have a chance to see her back on the tracks.

Within this celebration, Exporail will also present different models of the DeLoreanautomobile, including a replica of the one starring in Back to the Future III. It will be joining the John Molson locomotive.

The museum is glad to present Force motrice, une voie, des voix an immersive interdisciplinary experience surrounding the history of railroad workers. It combines storytelling, music, paintwork, vocal and sound work. Denis Lavalou, Chalres Acek, Erik West Millette and Antoine Bédard, under Sylvie Teste’s artistic direction, will present a performance in French at 11 a.m.


In addition, there will be a rally game allowing the discovery of objects of the museum’s collection. Finally, the public can be photographed in a beautiful railway car dating from 1857. To add to the festivities surrounding the John Molson, the public is invited to dress up in steampunk fashion.
Everyone who comes in costume will receive a 50% discount on the museum admission fee for the day.
From September 4 to October 31, 2019: from Wednesday through Sunday 10:00 am to 5 pm. Outdoor site and building 5 close at 4:00 pm. More information
