MODEL ORE CAR UNVEILED
On our closing weekend a 1/4 size model of the "made-in-Cobourg" Crossen ore car was unveiled by its creator, George Parker, and Murray King, who had turned the wheels. Red oak cubes replaced iron ore as the workings of the car were demonstrated to an appreciative audience. Beside being an exhibit in its own right, the model is serving as a template for a full size recreation. (more….)

COBOURG-PETERBOROUGH RAILWAY STILL GROWING
Stock rolls over the Rice Lake Bridge between Cobourg and Peterborough every day we're open. There are new buildings and layout improvements as we bring "the story back to life".
