WDM Short Line 101

The 1914 Vulcan was originally used in a coal mine in southern Alberta then at sodium sulphate mines in Alsask, SK and Bishopric, SK. In 1958 the engine was acquired by the Western Development Museum. Rebuilt in 1978 as engine 101, the Vulcan steams along the Short Line track (seasonal) on the Moose Jaw WDM grounds, to the delight of visitors. It is the only operating steam locomotive in Saskatchewan.

$101K for the 101 Campaign

Short Line Donate NowThe Short Line 101 has been chugging along the tracks since 1978, providing a unique experience at the WDM Moose Jaw. Even with routine maintenance and annual inspections, the track needs repairs so visitors can enjoy rides for many years to come.

The $101K for the 101 Campaign needs your help to get ‘back on track’. Funds raised will allow us to build a proper roadbed to support the track and to reengineer it so the way the train runs is smooth. We’ll repair rail, replace ties and fix switches. We will also build a shelter for the Vulcan locomotive, spruce up the route with landscaping and grow our training program, so people can learn how to be steam locomotive engineers.
