Canada's Public Transit Rail Enthusiasts


Rail Fans Canada is a railfan operated enthusiast website, with the aim of providing information on the Ottawa O-Train, Montreal Metro and Toronto Subway rail transit networks operated in Canada. The Rail Fans Canada website was born out of a desire to highlight these unique transit networks. These transit systems represent significant milestones in a city's history, and recognizing this fact we felt it was important to provide information and insight into these transit systems, so that others can learn more about what makes them special and unique.
