Steve Davies, the Director of the magnificent National Railway Museum at York, England and Stephen Middleton, the President of Stately Trains in England visited Canada last week. One of their first stops was at Exporail in Delson, Quebec which is our National Railway Museum operated by the Canadian Railway Historical Association. Their working steam engine, the John Molson and their ex-LBSCR Terrier Class no. 54, the WADDON were brought out for the occasion and looked especially great as can be seen in the photos above. In the image at the lower left below, we find our guests riding the miniature railway at Exporail.
In Friday, April 30th, the Toronto Railway Heritage Centre was host to a visit from these visitors from the U.K. No doubt they were eager to visit their T3 steam locomotive and the GER coach in its new summer home! In the two photos at the lower right we find them enjoying a ride on our miniature railway behind the Sweet Creek.
