Ontario Railway Murals

Murals have become increasingly popular in many communities to celebrate local railway and community history.

Over the years, I have collected a number of these images, but regret that I did not always make a note of the exact location or of the artist.

Prominent though among them are those of the late Allen C. Hilgendorf.

On this page, the intent is for the displayed murals to have a specific railway theme, but some are included for related context.

In many cases, the local railway station is part of the mural's theme, and these and some related structures or motifs have been illustrated by way of background.

Contributions are always  welcome, and will be gratefully received and duly acknowledged.
