WDM Short Line 101
Back May 18, 2013!
Celebrate International Museum Day at the Moose Jaw WDM with a ride on Saskatchewan's only operating steam engine, the Short Line 101. The WDM and the Moose Jaw Steam Club are planning for the 1914 Vulcan steam locomotive to have its inaugural run of the 2013 season.
2013 Ride Dates (weather permitting):
May 18, 19, 20
Times: Between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm
Tickets: $2 / person
The Vulcan steam locomotive will be chugging along the tracks this summer, bringing enjoyment to many. Thank you to all our great volunteers who make sure that our visitors can ride on the only operating steam locomotive in Saskatchewan.
The Vulcan 0-4-0 Locomotive required a new boiler. Work on the
restoration began in Spring
2010 and was completed in June 2011. While the Short Line
is now back on the rails, the new boiler is not yet paid for, so donations through the
purchase of railway ties are still gratefully accepted.
You can help! Fundraising efforts are underway to raise the needed $150,000 to cover the costs of having a new, custom built boiler made and installed.
