Our aging Via baggage tractor and Rescar Service truck have been idle for more than three years now. The Wednesday Crew took it upon themselves to overhaul them and fire them up! Both were propane powered, but the service truck was converted to gasoline. Both will help in the museum’s operations.

The Kopko Interpretative Centre, named after Margaret and Mike Kopko, is undergoing a major transformation. New siding is being installed on the east end, a refurbished foyer will be dedicated to members and supporters of the museum, and the interpretative displays are being rotated. Come on by for a visit!
