Donations to the Toronto Railway Heritage Museum
The TRHA would like to announce two significant donations to the Roundhouse and the City of Toronto. The Upper Canada Railway Society has gifted the Canadian Pacific Railway heavyweight passenger car "Cape Race" to the museum. This car will be restored to it's former glory as a prime example of the standards of deluxe passenger service that operated out of John Street and the Union Station.
The Canadian Railroad Historical Association, Toronto and York Division has donated the Toronto Hamilton and Buffalo Caboose #701907, the Reinhart Vinegars Ltd vinegar car #RVLX 101, and the Canadian Pacific Railway Fowler Patent Boxcar #188625. These artifacts will be stabilized, repaired as needed, and interpreted.
Our thanks go to both organizations for their generosity and support for the Toronto Rail Heritage Museum.
