Doors Open - Visiting the Roundhouse Interior

Click on each picture for a closer look!
Visitors to the roundhouse this year had the unique oppportunity to see the newly renovated interior with several concrete firewalls removed allowing the visitor to see much of the roundhouse in one sweeping view. In the picture at left, we see what the Doors Open visitor saw as they entered the roundhouse. The TRHA had mounted a picture display at the end of this track for the visitors to enjoy. In the next picture, we see one of the many fine photograhs taken by Norm Betts, the professional photograper who has been hired to chronicle the roundhouse restoration in pictures. These photos were blown up as shown here and hung throughout the roundhouse. The next picture, also hung up for the tour, is another of Norm Betts' fine works which captures the ambience of a scene including the vinegar car and the caboose. Seen in the right hand picture is the final stop on the tour of the interior. This is the area in the museum where the TRHA shop has established a workshop area to allow our teams of volunteers to continue the work of restoring the museum's artifacts.
