MONTREAL – Exporail, in collaboration with Operation Lifesaver, is preparing a permanent exhibition on rail safety. The family-oriented display will offer visitors three distinct experiences exploring aspects of safety around railroads and encouraging conversations about developments in safety measures.

Exporail Executive Director Marie-Claude Reid explains that the three components of the exhibition set up at different locations around the Exporail site will be sure to generate considerable interest. An immersive experience will be created to confront visitors with realistic scenarios designed to encourage safe behavior around railroads. An interactive circuit will also help make small children aware of railway safety by stimulating their motor skills, imagination, and senses. Finally, a display in the entrance hall will underscore the evolution of safety measures, regulations, and innovations developed by the rail industry.

The exhibit, which is partially funded by a 2014 grant from Canadian National, will open during Rail Safety Week in April 2016.
