We restore and maintain railway equipment representative of the history of VIA Rail Canada since 1976. Help us save locomotive VIA #6539!
Here’s what we’re working on at the moment…
We’re working to restore RDC 6133s interior to its appearance in the early 1980s with dark woodgrain finishes, and to rectify water damage to the accessible washroom end of the car.
E-series sleeper Edmundston needs updating to electric heat and head end power to be ready to run on the main line again.
RDC-2 6215 will require deep-cleaning and minor repairs to return it to operating condition.
We’ve already got one of only two surviving LRC locomotives running. Now 6917 needs a professional coat of railway-grade paint and radiator repairs to be ready for the public to enjoy.
We work to ensure that everyone has the opportunity of experiencing Canada’s railway history in action. Your contribution helps us ensure the active preservation of railway equipment that has served communities from coast to coast.
