Fort Steele Heritage Town

Welcome to Fort Steele, the fun capital of East Kootenay. The steam railway goes through here now, transporting both adults and children back to a friendlier, more carefree time. Walk into the luxury of the North-West Mounted Police Officers' Quarters and imagine Galbraith's Ferry in 1887, sitting down to dinner with a full table service and servants in the back room. Or walk out and catch a wagon pulled by large black Clydesdale horses. The ride through time is pungent with odours from the bakery (and the horses), the field crops (and the horses) and the flower gardens (and the horses). Let your youngsters follow the White Polish, Barred Rock, Black Giants and other 19th century breeds of chickens as they wander the site. Tiring of that they may want to watch our young Cotsold lambs gambol about the pasture. They are part of a small herd of this rare breed that Fort Steele is trying to build. The amusements for young children are legion, and we haven't even talked about the 19th century confection and candy store located on site. For those craving more substance, there are fifty exhibit buildings to delight all ages, as well as incredibly successful street drama presentations. Follow the series of vignettes as they occur throughout the site, and get exposed to history as your history teacher never imagined it. Fort Steele Heritage Town is a happening place.

Canadian Museum of Rail Travel

The museum is well known for its collection of 28 luxurious railcars specializing in rail travel of the past. The museum is relocated to a much larger more accessible site in 2002, and has built palatial new facilities able to service hundreds of people at any one time. There are several complete historical trains sets on display (which are essentially "Deluxe Hotels on Wheels") from various periods:
  • The "Pacific Express" of 1887
  • The "Soo-Spokane Train Deluxe" of 1907
  • The "Trans-Canada Limited" of 1929
  • The "Chinook" of 1936
  • plus Business, Interpretive and Royal Cars
Railway Hotel architecture and design is also explored in the restored 3000 sq. ft., 2-storey high, oak-paneled "Grand Café" from the former "Royal Alexandra Hotel" of Winnipeg, built by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1906, but demolished in 1971. Now called "Royal Alexandra Hall", this room as become a favorite community space for visitors and residents in Cranbrook. The 2-storey high carved oak fireplace from the formal dining room of the Hotel is the first impression on entering the main entrance hall. A heritage attraction not to be missed, the museum has won numerous national and provincial awards for restoration, among them the 1993 "Gold Medal" from Heritage Canada.
