Doors Open - The Miniature Railway Experience

Click on each image for a closer look!
Continuing with our coverage of the opening weekend of the Toronto Railway Heritage Centre which of course was also part of the Toronto-wide Doors Open event, we turn our attention to the activities surrounding our miniature railway operation. In the image at upper left, we capture our Sweet Creek locomotive pulling passengers past our massive CNR 4-8-4 Northern Steam Locomotive #6213 on the Friday before Doors Open. In the middle image above, the F7 "Park Diesel" relives a role that it likely played decades ago providing train travel to visitors of amusement parks as it pulls away from the recently restored Don Station. In the upper right image, we find our miniature version of our full size Whitcomb centre cab diesel also pulling passengers past #6213.
In the picture at the lower left, we find the Whitcomb pulling a full load of passengers as it passes by its full-size prototype. The middle photo below gives us a close-up view of the Park Diesel and its passengers. Finally in the lower right image, we have a more panoramic view of the park and the miniature railway.
