The century old Train Station in Tatamagouche has been restored with furnishings reflecting its railway past. The station itself and its spacious cabooses offer a unique Bed & Breakfast experience. Seven cabooses dating from 1911 to 1978 have been renovated into deluxe accommodations reflecting the age of the railway car.
