History buffs will love this stop on the York Durham Heritage Railway
The small community of Uxbridge, in Central Counties, makes for a perfect stop for those driving through southern Ontario. This picturesque town is pretty, friendly, and filled with amenities (including great cafes and restaurants), but one of its most interesting attractions is the former railway station.
It's amazing to think of how this community must have once bustled with activity with passengers and cargo trains rolling in and out of town. The York Durham Heritage Railway, opened in 1996, is a tourist train operating between Stouffville, Goodwood, and Uxbridge.
Uxbridge is just a short drive from Toronto and is an affordable day trip that can be enjoyed by all ages - and especially history and train enthusiasts.
