ABOUT THE EVENT / PROMOTION
Join the Golden Horseshoe Live Steamers and the Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology for a model train show in the 1913 Electric Pumphouse building.

Visitors of all ages are invited to see the trains run and speak with club members to learn about this fascinating hobby.
The Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology, also known as the “Steam Museum”, is located on the site of the 1859 Hamilton Waterworks complex. This National Historic Site is recognized as a civil and power engineering landmark. Today the museum preserves two massive steam-powered beam engines, which pumped water in Hamilton from 1859 to 1910, as well as a collection of artifacts relating Hamilton’s industrial past. The museum interprets Hamilton’s relationship with water, steam power, and industrialisation.
The museum offers guided tours, public programs, and special events.
