MR-63 car at Exporail

MR-63 “inaugural car” at Exporail

With its new exhibition, Exporail, The Canadian Railway Museum, in Saint-Constant, will be the only place where railway fans can see one of the cars from Montréal’s very first MR-63 métro train.

The MR-63 inaugural car, restored to its original appearance, is now part of Exporail’s impressive collection.

Worthy of a museum

This car has quite the history! It’s called the “inaugural car” because it hosted dignitaries during the unveiling of the first MR-63 cars in August 1965. It was then integrated into the Montréal métro system, where it carried millions of people until its retirement some 50 years later.
