Children aged 6 to 8 years

(science and technology and social sciences) 

Students learn the names of different parts of a train through the observation and exploration of railway vehicles. They can climb aboard two locomotives, one steam and one diesel-electric.

They can learn to tell the difference between a passenger car and freight car. They can look through the windows of a railway car once used as a school and see how a rotary snowplow clears the tracks during winter storms. Along the way they can learn about different railway jobs.

During the month of December, take part in our Railway Christmas seasonal program!
