The Railway Station Tourism Centre in Barry’s Bay has seen a strong turnout this summer.
That’s according to a report presented at Wednesday’s Madawaska Valley Recreation, Heritage and Culture Committee. The report says that between May 19th and 27th, the Railway Station had 193 visitors.
Meanwhile, in the month of June the tourism centre saw 707 visitors whether it be people at the museum, asking for information, using the amenities or logging on to the wifi.
In June, four local students that were hired to man the railway station attended a workshop that included a tour of the Highway 60 corridor and other landmarks in the area.
The Railway Station is now open daily from 10:00am to 5:00pm for visitors and residents alike to visit.
