Railway enthusiasts invited to watch Canadian artifacts take to the tracks
Ingenium - Canada's Museums of Science and Innovation
Jul 10, 2019
Moving artifacts that weigh hundreds of metric tons is no small feat, but Ingenium is on a roll. Later this month, three pieces of Canada’s storied rail history will take to the tracks during a public event that will see them move out of a storage warehouse and into their new home in Ingenium’s Collections Conservation Centre in Ottawa. The Bytown Railway Society — a volunteer-run organization which restores and operates steam rail equipment — will be a key player in the move.
