Cranbrook ’s main attraction, the Canadian Museum of Rail Travel (Van Horne St., 250/489-3918, daily 10 a.m.–6 p.m. Apr.–mid-Oct., Tues.–Sat. 10 a.m.–5 p.m. mid-Oct.–Mar.) is on a side line of the main Canadian Pacific Railway line directly opposite downtown. Most of the displays are outdoors, spread along three sets of track, including a luxury train (also called “The Millionaires’ Train”) built for the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1929.
Restoration displays, a viewing corridor, a model railway display, a slide show, guided tours of the car interiors, and tea and scones in the Argyle Dining Car are included in the price of the two-hour Deluxe Tour (adult $12, senior $10, child $6.50). You can choose abbreviated tours (from adult $5.25, senior $4.50, child $2.25), but you’ll miss the best of the museum.
