The Toronto Railway Museum continues celebrating its 10th anniversary by launching a virtual lecture series.

The series starts by commemorating Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s 95th birthday with stories of the Royal Train Tours of Canada. In May, the Museum hosts a viewing of the film, Ties that Bind, celebrating Asian Heritage Month. In June, the Museum says, “just for fun”, the topic is Canadian Baseball’s Love Affair with Railways.

The first virtual lecture takes place Wednesday, April 21 from 6:30 until 9 p.m. Toronto-based “Royal Historian”, Dr. Carolyn Harris, will conduct the presentation and a local train expert will also comment.
