    Throughout the downtown core of Transcona there are murals on the walls of buildings. Each is of a train, or of something related to the railway.

    Transcona Historical Museum

    When the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway began building their cross-Canada railway link through Manitoba, they chose what is now Transcona to build their western repair shops.

    While this is a general musuem about Transcona, there is a heavy railway influence. And not only here, but throughout the city with murals and railway style street lanterns.

    If you are into railway history, this is an excellent gem.

    Montana's has a western theme to it. If you are a meat-eater, this is the restaurant for you.

    Favorite Dish: They offer several different types of ribs. The chicken is also good too.

    by rdo911 Written Jan 12, 2006

    Kildonan Place is the largest shopping mall in Transcona. There is a Sears, Zellers (Canadian version of K-Mart), food court, theatre complex, dollar store, and a host of smaller shops. Plenty of parking.

    Plan about 2-3 hours to explore everything.

Transcona Local Customs

  • by Maestr0 Written Jun 28, 2007

    Transcona has a lot of old neighborhoods, and depending where you're from, the unique layout can sometimes make it confusing at first to find a particular house or building. Once you know the general layout however, it's easy. Keep an eye out for one-way streets.

    If you're visiting someone you may notice that many houses don't have driveways in the front of the house. This is because instead the neighborhoods were designed with a narrow, concrete or dirt alley that runs along the back, which everyone's garage and / or small parking area connects to. Because of this, many people prefer to use their back door as the main entrance to the house. Some houses will have signs that request you knock or ring for them at the back door rather than the front. In the many years my grandparents lived in Transcona, I only once saw them use the front door, to greet a guest who had never been there before.

    You generally don't want to be driving down back alleys unless you're going to someone's house. You have to go slow, people and pets are walking out from behind walls and bushes all the time, and if another vehicle comes your way it can be a tight squeeze.
