Presented by Exporail, the Candian Railway Museum

Railfans will find this exhibit to be like a culinary trip and gourmets will have a unique opportunity to discover the evolution of food aboard trains. This exhibition provides a look at the exceptional contribution made by railway catering to modern culinary art through vintage crockery, silverware, menus, archival documents and billboards.

Faster! Further! Long before the advent of aircraft and cars, railways changed the way we travel. At that time only comfort and luxury were missing from enjoying the beauty of breathtaking landscapes. Longer distance travel created dining cars to satisfy the traveler’s appetite.
