About

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.

Rail Fans Canada is not affiliated, nor connected to any transit agency or city. Customer related inquiries should be directed to the respective transit agency and not this website.

Born and raised in Ottawa, I have always had a big interest in public infrastructure and transit as well as urban planning and design. As life would have it, my actual work and career are not even close to being related to these areas or fields of interest. Never the less, that has not stopped me from being informed, doing my own research, enjoying and discovering all there is to know.

I am a big fan of the Montreal Metro system and the reality of having something similar here in Ottawa is truly exciting. That is why I made the decision to chronicle its arrival and the future expansions that will soon begin. This is a milestone event in the history of Ottawa, as the O-Train is a big step towards advancing our city in a new direction.
