Choo, choo! WDM encourages residents to jump on board train activities

Train enthusiasts will find plenty to love next month at the WDM

The Western Development Museum is encouraging residents to jump on board with some of its train-related activities during the month of March.

During the museum’s monthly Coffee Club on Wednesday, March 25 at 10 a.m., a presentation will be made about the Vulcan locomotive engine, Saskatchewan’s only operating steam engine on the K+S Potash Canada short line 101. Guests will be able to learn more about the “little train” at the WDM, which returns to the rails for the season on May 16.

The program includes coffee and cookies and everyone is invited to attend. The cost is $3, while it is free admission for members.

Then the weekend of March 28 and 29, the museum will host the Thunder Creek Model Train Show in conjunction with the Moose Jaw Thunder Creek Railroad Club. This weekend train extravaganza will feature model train displays from across Western Canada that take over the building’s many gallery spaces.

If you have an interest in model railroading or admire craftsmanship, you won’t want to miss this show.

Regular admission applies to enter the museum, while admission is free for members.
