By land and by sea, the Railway Coastal Museum highlights the history of Newfoundland rail-and-nautical services. The museum sits inside the 110-year-old Newfoundland Railway station, which is at the beginning of the Trans Canada Trail and the original railway route. Visitors can explore the old platform, a restored 1940s train car, and the stories of the people and events that shaped Newfoundland's past. Along with these railway-themed exhibits, the museum showcases the efforts of the Newfoundlanders who created the Coastal Services passenger, mail, and freight routes.

Lodgers park RVs or set up tents on secluded campsites equipped with fresh water from an artesian well, or use a mini-golf course for practice or attempts to trick Tiger Woods into thinking he has become a giant.

Afterwards, players can refuel at the snack bar on slices of pizza and crisp, golden-brown onion rings or bulk up their thumbs at the in-house video games and air-hockey table.
