Restorations

Oban interlocking switching tower received new siding and a new staircase in 2012-2013. This is a unique Grand Truck Pacific structure, built circa 1910 and located at Oban, Sk. It has a system of levers that controls four train order boards.  It also has one of the best views of the museum! See Keith Flory’s account of the restoration in the sub-page —>

1957 Whiting Trackmobile restoration – after blowing the engine/transmission twice, volunteers assisted by the Saskatchewan British Car Club are working hard to get the trackmobile back on the rails. This involves replacing the transmission from a donor trackmobile purchased in the United States. Once installed, we bent some connecting rods while trying to keep the engine running.  These are now being replaced and we hope to be up and running again in 2015.
