Milton Steam Era Was a Great Success!
As mentioned in the last news item, the TRHA, working with the Toronto Live Steamers and the Golden Horseshoe Live Steamers (http://www.ghls.ca/) installed the TRHA's portable miniature railway track and offered steam train and diesel riding experiences to everyone attending. Over 1,400 people rode on the train making this a very successful event. If you click on the movie above, you can experience a ride behind the Romulus 0-4-0 steam engine. The movie was made by a visitor. The movie title says that this is an 81 year old model capable of pulling 1.7 tons. In actual fact, it is a 23 year old model built in England in 1985 and pulled over 3 tons in a test run several years ago.
