Field Trip: A Visit to the Smith Falls Railway Museum!
Click on each image for a closer look!
It is a Saturday and the roundhouse is closed as the G20 Summit is in full flight. What to do? A road tripwas in order!
I had never checked out the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario in Smiths Falls, Ontario. We got the TH&B caboose and they got the Dental Car. And what a beauty the Dental Car is. The color is a little faded outside. But inside it is in almost pristine condition. The wood walls and the dentist chair are impressive. All just like it was yesterday.
There are other artefacts on site that are worth the trip. These include:
- The 1947 CP Cadillac inspection car
- CP’s 1957 Diesel 6591
- CNR’s 1912 Steam Locomotive #1112
- Wickham Track Cars
- A string of cabooses, some in poor condition, one in excellent condition
- Automobile box cars.
