The Waterloo Central Railway (WCR) is a non-profit organization that is owned and operated by the Southern Ontario Locomotive Restoration Society (SOLRS). In May 2007, SOLRS received approval from the City of Waterloo to run trains from Waterloo to St Jacobs. The train runs three times a day on Tuesdays (June to August), Thursdays (May to October) and Saturday (April to October).
SOLRS has a variety of heritage cars in active service and others that await restoration. When SOLRS takes extended tours, they also bring a baggage car, two air-dump hopper cars, two boxcars and tanker with them.
