As well as a host of artifacts including tools and telegraphic equipment, the original Grand Trunk Railway Station in Ridgeway and the CN B-1 station (used to monitor traffic over the International Railway Bridge) were moved to the Fort Erie Railroad Museum site and are being preserved. The B-1 serves as office and gift shop. The Ridgeway Station houses the main exhibit area.

The Canadian National Railway (CNR) steam engine 6218 is the cornerstone artifact of the Fort Erie Railway Museum. Built in 1942, and newly repaired in 2018, the 4-8-4 wheel configuration Northern type served well into the 1960s. In its retirement, it serves as a reminder of days past when Fort Erie boasted the third-largest rail yard in Canada.
