TORONTO– The Grey Cup 100 Train Tour presented by RONA is finally home – just in time for what will be the biggest Grey Cup celebration in 100 years.

After a 10-week, 138-stop, 8,100 kilometre journey across the country, the tour has landed in Toronto for the 100th Grey Cup Festival and the 100th Grey Cup game.

The Grey Cup 100 Train Tour will be open to the public one last time in Toronto on Saturday, November 17th at Exhibition Station on Manitoba Drive, Toronto. 

At the conclusion of this final event, the train will be dismantled and some exhibits from the train will be on display throughout the city for the Grey Cup Festival and donated to the Canadian Football Hall of Fame. 

The public is invited to tour the train, wrapped in iconic Grey Cup images and featuring a high tech showcase car for the Grey Cup itself, a museum car that captures a century of Grey Cup history, and a team car that celebrates today’s teams and athletes and the CFL’s bright future.
