The History

of Waterloo Central Railway

A Rich History Since the Late 1800s

Waterloo Central Railway and its predecessors have a rich and exciting history that trace back to the construction of the Waterloo Junction Railway in the late 1800s. Today, SOLRS volunteers work daily restoring and maintaining heritage railway equipment such as steam locomotive No. 9 and providing heritage passenger service, steam train excursions, themed train experiences, and special charter trains between Waterloo, St. Jacobs, and Elmira.
