Welcome

Rail Fans Canada is a railfan operated enthusiast website, with the aim of showcasing 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 showcase these transit systems, so that other interested people can learn more about what makes them special and unique.
