CN Caboose Update

Here is the latest news from the CN Caboose acquisition project.

Due to some scheduling conflicts with the City Clerk’s Office, our deputation before council has been rescheduled to Monday, May 4th (pending confirmation).

This past week society treasurer Shelley Simon had the opportunity to tour the inside of the caboose with Paul Fayrick, Manager of the Parks Division. The interior appears to be in good shape and it also gave us more information regarding the history of this particular piece railway rolling stock. Caboose “78175” was built by the CN Transcona Shops in Winnipeg in 1929, which certainly dates to the period of the PD. It’s current paint and configuration reflect a 1950’s appearance; it is the society’s intention to restore caboose, should we acquire it, to a 1930’s livery.
