Our F7 emerges resplendent in CN colours!
In earlier TRHA News postings (click here to read them) we told the story of Barry Silverthorne's saving an F7 cab decades ago (see his pictures above) and subsequently donating it to us at the Toronto Railway Museum..
Our volunteers have been working over the past few years to restore the cab. The latest step in this effort has been to paint the cab in the CN colours it carried when it was scrapped. Below we see the wonderful result.
In order to be able to address other restoration priorities within our three stalls of the roundhouse, we have now moved the cab and parked it just outside the doors of stall 15 of the Roundhouse.
