ON THE ROAD

 

Canadian Railway Observations will try and get out to as many local railway events as we can and will publish reports here.

Make sure we are aware on any events you may be involved in and if we canít attend, maybe you can send us a report of the event.

You can contact us at sales@canadianrailwayobservations.com

 

No new events this month but here are a couple we attended last month.

 

Niagara Railway Museum Open House Sept. 12th

 

 

CRO did attend the opening of the Niagara Railway Museum located at Fort Erie Ontario. Ken Jones and his team of dedicated volunteers are turning the old CN diesel repair facility into a railway museum. Lots of work to do but I am sure they will succeed. Drop in and see them when in the area.

Southern Ontario Locomotive Restoration Society

Grand Opening St Jacobs Shop Sept. 16th

 

 

CRO was also in attendance at the Grand Opening of the SOLRS Shop in St Jacobs. Everyone can be very proud of what they have accomplished. The shop is a real showplace and will be put to work right away getting their steam engine ETR No. 9 ready for next year. They are very proud of it and I am sure willing to show it off. The event was well attended with politicians from all levels there to cut the ribbon.

A full report of the event can be found here Southern Ontario Locomotive Restoration Society

CRO has added their support to saving a CN caboose owned by SOLRS-W ( Southern Ontario Locomotive Restoration Society Windsor). It is a CNR Pt St Charles Caboose. They are looking for donations and we can offer tax receipts.
