Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the TRHA
On this occasion, we chose to share with you the video above as a very special Holiday treat as it captures so well the magnificence of the massive steam locomotives that were so instrumental in the development of our country. It features the "Empress", CP's magnificently restored Royal Hudson, as it is prepared for service with a dramatic "steamy" display at Lake Louise in the rocky Mountains.
As the Holiday Season is now upon us, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your support of the Toronto Railway Museum. We have been heartened by the fact that our visitor volumes this past summer have dramatically increased from 2013. We thank both our paid staff and our volunteers for making this happen. We are also grateful for and proud of our restoration crew volunteers who have contributed so much in 2013. Their significant efforts in restoring a number of our major artefacts such as the TH&B #70 caboose, the Cape Race and the newly acquired CN caboose has greatly enhanced our museum’s development.On behalf of the everyone at the Toronto Railway Historical Association and the Toronto Railway Museum, we would like to wish all of you the best for the Holiday Season, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Enjoy yourselves and stay safe!
