The Railway Coastal Museum is not just another building, the building is built of Granite from the Gaff Topsails of interior Newfoundland by the Reid Newfoundland Company. The railway coastal museum is located in the historic Newfoundland Railway terminal on Water Street and contains exhibits detailing the history of the Newfoundland Railway and the history of coastal water transportation in the province. The railway coastal museum is one of the last few railway stations that survive in the province which made up part of the great Newfoundland railway network that was built thru-out the province in the late 1880's which had lasted until the late 1980's when the railway was shutdown and erased from history. The Railway Coastal Museum stands as a monument to that lost industry here in Province. Tho the railway was lost so many years ago, there are many people around the Province and across the world that remember our railway and the memories left behind thru photo's, video and artifacts that have been passed down thru the years, much of our Railway and Coastal artifacts and history now resides within the walls of the railway coastal museum. Unfortunately the City of St.John's has plans to shutdown the museum and close yet another door on Newfoundland history. The Railway Coastal museum must be saved, the museum must not be allowed to close it's doors on the City of St.Johns, it's people, the province and to all the great people of the world. The Railway coastal Museum has a story to tell, and a story that must live on for all time! Help save the Railway Coastal Museum!
