Almost Ready for the Grand Opening of the TRHC!

Click on each image for a closer look!
As the day before the grand opening came to a close, last minute preparations were being completed in readiness for the Official Opening on Friday! Above we see the interior of the caboose being painted now that the tongue and groove siding has been applied to the interior. In the next picture, we see our GP7 #4803 parked next to CNR Northern #6213 providing an interesting contrast between steam and diesel-electric motive power. On the turntable, Cape Race has been uncovered and rests awaiting movement into the roundhouse where the Jackman and Cape Race passenger cars will occupy the two outside stalls with the full size simulators positioned at the end of the middle track.
In the images below, we find the Pyke Crane positioned outside the roundhouse beside #7020 to allow for expanded visitor access to the three stalls inside. The vinegar tank car was also unwrapped and put on display outside on one of the approach tacks to the roundhouse. Finally, we find the U33C diesel cab simulator positioned in front of the F7 Cab (not visible) ready to greet visitors to the museum.
