Kirkella Sleeping Car

Built in 1913 by Pullman, Kirkella was a first class sleeping car. It features facing seats during the day, and upper and lower berths for the evening. Heavy curtains provide privacy at night and a ladder was provided.  Kirkella was removed from passenger service in 1956 and put into work service as a carman’s sleeper. The car was retired in 1996 and donated to the museum by CPR. The sleeping car was partially restored by a movie company for the filming of the movie Summer of the Monkeys in 1997. They painted out the CP Rail logo and replaced it with Grand Truck.
