MODEL ORE CAR UNVEILED

George Parker & Murray King with Ore Car ModelOn 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….)
