Retail, Gifts and Donations

Welcome to WCR's Online Store!

We are proudly operated by the Southern Ontario Locomotive Restoration Society (SOLRS), a not-for-profit, registered charitable organization. During 2020 our passenger trains have been cancelled due to COVID19. During this time we are fundraising for our restoration projects of our heritage railway equipment through our online stores. We are proud to introduce two exciting options for you to support our restoration efforts:

Retail Store: Browse our retail store below to find the perfect souvenir or gift for yourself or any rail fan. Products range from one-of-a-kind handmade items, souvenirs, limited edition items and more.

Donations Store: Support our restoration efforts by browsing through our online donation store. We’ve compiled an extensive list of items needed to restore our steam locomotive No. 9. Our online donation store is fun and educational. There are also free tickets available for a special excursion for every donation made.

Donate Supplies & Equipment towards the Restoration of Steam Locomotive No. 9


Our heritage Steam Locomotive No. 9 is undergoing some much needed restoration. Our goal is to have it look as new as it did when it first pulled out of Montreal Locomotive Works in1923. When completed, passengers of Waterloo Central Railway will truly get to experience history brought to life as they ride aboard our heritage coaches pulled by this 97 year old steam locomotive.

Enjoy not only supporting the only regularly operating steam locomotive in eastern Canadian, but learning about all of the unique equipment and custom work that goes into restoring a steam locomotive.

As a thank you, everyone who donates¬†one item from our Donations Store will be invited (along with one guest) to a special Steam Excursion Train Ride upon No. 9’s completion (Date and details TBD).

Thank you for supporting our restoration programs and our efforts to preserve the history of railways in Canada.
