About Us

Bringing History to Life!

Waterloo Central Railway

Waterloo Central Railway offers historic passenger train rides between Northfield Drive in Waterloo, the St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market, Village of St. Jacobs and Town of Elmira. We are proudly operated by the Southern Ontario Locomotive Restoration Society (SOLRS), a not-for-profit, registered charitable organization.  All ticket proceeds go towards supporting restoration programs that our volunteers complete at our Restoration and Maintenance Facility in St. Jacobs.

Our non-for-profit organization depends almost entirely on the efforts of our generous volunteers. They are the heart of our organization and help to provide such memorable guest experiences. We accept applications year-round for new volunteers for a wide variety of opportunities.
