The 1911 Canadian Northern Railway depot, located in the heart of Camrose’s heritage district, forms the centrepiece for the Camrose Railway Park. On the park grounds you are able to walk through the bunkhouse with its communication and other displays. Visit the watchman’s shed, which was originally a passenger shelter in the Silver Springs area, and visit the Sparling Centre with its historical pictures of Camrose. View the track car storage shed, and read and hear the stories of the people who worked maintaining the track and their machines.

The depot houses unique displays of local railway heritage, the White Elephant gift shop, self-serve refreshments in the Tea Room, as well as the Canadian Northern Society’s archives and library. The Library and Archives have paper archives including reference material and manuals, books on the history of the railways, local history, general railway subjects, Canadian National Railway books and articles, Canadian Pacific books and articles, railway regulation manuals, railway station books, GTP, CPR, CN and NAR forms, junior railway stories, historical educational manuals for railway employees, train and model magazines, time tables, maps and station plans. The public can access the library by visiting the station during opening hours or by appointment.
