Volunteer Highlight: Bill Raynor

It was around 2015 that WDM volunteer Stan Mills, invited Bill Raynor to check out the WDM North Battleford. As Bill put it, “I came along with him to see what he was working on and decided to keep coming.”

Two men in a working shopBill works with a group of volunteers at the WDM North Battleford who help out in the shop. These volunteers work on a variety of engines from the WDM’s operating equipment collection, which are the machines used in demonstrations. When asked what his favourite thing to do at the WDM is, Bill was clear, “Definitely working on and getting to drive the old Rumely tractor.” The 1915 Rumely Gas Pull tractor (WDM-1973-NB-48) was donated to the WDM in 1953.

Besides getting to tinker on old machines, Bill loves the camaraderie of working with the other volunteers… and the dessert treats they occasionally get from the Museum caterer.

You can look for Bill and the Rumely Gas Pull tractor at the History in Motion show at the WDM North Battleford on August 17 and 18, 2024.

Thanks for keeping the engines running, Bill!
