About Brant Railway Heritage Society

We are a group of over 40 members from many communities in and around Brant, including Brantford, Paris, St George, Mount Pleasant and surrounding areas, some of our members are from Hamilton, Chatham, Belleville and even from as far away as British Columbia.

The beginnings of the BRHS were formed in August of 2018 at first with a Facebook page and soon followed by an election of an interim board of directors in September 2018.  Since that time the Society has applied for and received our Not For Profit incorporation
through the Ontario Historical Society, elected a formal board of directors and officers, ratified a constitution and bylaws and received our Ontario Corporation Number.  We are in the process of applying for our registered charity status through Revenue Canada.

Baggage Cart
One of the 2 baggage carts, this one believed to be build for the Grand Trunk Railway before 1900

We have been collecting artifacts and archive materials in preparation for an eventual museum and begun a restoration of 2 baggage carts with most materials donated.  The carts were both from the CN/Via station platform in Brantford, retired by Via in the 1990's.

Our most recent under taking is the preservation, restoration and relocation of the LE&N Mt Pleasant station, with the intent of reopening it as a railway museum.
