Newfoundland T'Railway

The Newfoundland T’Railway is an 883km long rail-trail that crosses Newfoundland from East to West, running from St. John’s in the East to Port aux Basques in the West. As a mixed use rail-trail, the T’Railway takes you across some of Canada’s most unique landscapes. Crossing 130 bridges along the route whomever takes on this route will be subject to beautiful vistas throughout the entire 883km.

The T’Railway follows an old rail line from Channel Port aux Basques to St John’s. Now a linear provincial park, the trail provides a close-up view of the diverse landscape and culture on the island. You will see historic and new urban neighbourhoods, secluded forests, quiet meadows, fishing villages, inlets, sprawling barrens, massive rock outcrops and grand ocean and mountain views. To travel the T’Railway is to step back in time. The railway served Newfoundland from 1898-1988, moving so slowly on its narrow gauge track it was affectionately nicknamed the ‘Newfie Bullet’. Today reminders of the railway era abound. There are relic and restored stations, museums with old trains, railway cars now revamped as homes, and trestles – 132, which have been restored for trail users.
