All Aboard! Let’s bring the CN Dining Car Home, to Owen Sound!

Great partnership between the Nottawasaga Model Railway club and the Community Waterfront Heritage Centre!

Nottawasaga Model Railway club has generously accepted to help the Community Waterfront Heritage Centre (CWHC) to receive visibility for its  great project: All Aboard! Let’s Bring the CN Dining Car Home!

Having purchased a 1953 CN Dining Car last year, the CWHC is raising funds to move the Dining Car from Keswick to Owen Sound, and renovate it into a museum historic space – 1950s train car, a community meeting space and an ice cream parlor.

To raise funds for this project, CWHC is selling raffle tickets for $25 to win a 1-week luxury train package for two adults to Quebec City, with accommodation at the Fairmont Chateau Frontenac (cash value of $8,000 two persons). The draw will take place on September 19th, 2015, at 2 p.m., at the CWHC.

 Two raffle tickets were offered for bid at the 21st Nottawasaga Model Railway Auction, held on Saturday, May 2nd, 2015. 


 For more information about the CN Dining Car project, or to purchase raffle tickets, please contact the Waterfront Heritage Centre @ 519-371-3333.

 Thank you to the Nottawasaga Model Railway club for their help!
