Donation: Print of a CP Unit Train in the Rockies!
Click on each image for a closer look!
Recently, Ian Law donated a large four foot by eight foot print of a diesel hauled CP unit train working its way through the Rocky Mountains in western Canada. Unit trains are trains which are dedicated to hauling a specific commodity such as grain or coal.
We suspect that the original print was made for the CP railway and used to promote their service in the marketplace. Our thanks go out to Ian for the generous donation and to Dave Wetherald for using his van to fetch this item and deliver it to the museum. It is now on display on one wall of our Stall 17 display space.
