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 other rail transportation 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.
