Building the Road to Victory. Canadian Railway Troops, Forgotten Heroes

June 30 - September 30, 2016

Building the Road exhibit from Exporail - 2016

from Exporail, the Canadian Railway Museum

Although railroads played an important part in the initial phase of the First World War (1914-1918) mainly during mobilization, they gradually became a tool that enabled the allied forces to conquer the enemy. Known for their expertise and courage, soldiers of the Canadian railway troops have become the forgotten heroes that we are spotlighting now for their unique and irreplaceable contribution. This exhibition showcases how their expertise was acquired as early as the 19th century, on the plains of Western Canada to the battlefields of South Africa. Period posters, uniforms, exceptional archive documents, mock ups, tools, instruments and typical equipment are paired with clips filmed on the European front.

This exhibition was produced in cooperation with the Université de Montréal (Special collections and Rare Books library), the Canadian War Museum (Ottawa), the Glenbow Museum (Edmonton) and the Stewart-McCord Museum (Montreal).
