The Northern Ontario Railroad Museum and Heritage Centre recently secured former Temiskaming & Northern Ontario Railway locomotive #219.  Without the museum's hard work, the locomotive would have been sold for scrap.


With #219's future assured, the Museum is now in need of money to move the locomotive to Capreol, ON and to restore it.  They are part of Aviva's Community Fund and you can help without spending a penny!  Follow the links to find out how you can vote for Aviva to help fund the restoration of #219.  Voting starts today!

The “Dominion of Canada” has joined the “Dwight D. Eisenhower”,  and other A4 Streamlined steam locomotives at the National Railway Museum in York, in the UK. The locomotives have been shipped to the National Railway Museum for a period of two years. They will take part in the 2013 celebrations commemorating the 75th. anniversary of Mallard's world record speed run for steam.  CRO will cover this.

The “Dominion of Canada” is being cosmetically restored to ‘as built’ condition with side valences, blue livery and stainless steel numbers and lettering; its original CPR bell and whistle will also be added back. This is made possible by funding from the National Railway Museum in York, and donors in Canada.
