K+S Potash Canada 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.

The Whistle is Back!

Thanks to K+S Potash Canada, the WDM Moose Jaw completed the rebuild of the ¼ mile track, ensuring the safety of passengers and crew. The Museum will also be creating an education program to train certified operators and crew volunteers, and have partnered with K+S Potash Canada on a program  providing passes to patients and families staying at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital.
