Micheline, the Donut Lady, made a big hit at the Dining Car Opening on September the 19th as she distributed free donuts to the crowds who attended.

The crowds are forming in spite of a grey and wet day. The Legion supplied burgers and fries and folks had a great time visiting the dining car which was open for this event.

The official ribbon cutting with Wayne King, Ann Kelly , Jan Chamberlain and Wendy Tomlinson.
Wayne was the man on the job getting the car moved from Keswick, sandblasted and painted and moved again to the tracks beside the museum. Ann Kelly is a big supporter and sold at least 10 books of tickets!. Jan is our President and was always in front of the public selling tickets and ensuring our success for this first stage of fund-raising. Wendy is our Manager/Curator and spoke eloquently about the history of the car.

CD Dining Car - Clean up Crew
The cleaning crew for the dining car looks relaxed and refreshed after a fine pizza supper outside at the picnic tables. The inside of the car was a blistering sauna earlier for this clean-up crew but we’ve got it spiffed up for a few early visitors who have booked the space for meetings.
