Harvest draws to a close

Another successful harvest has drawn to a close. And with that we have some exciting updates on the progress of Southern Prairie Railway.

Over the last couple of months, hundreds of hours of volunteer time has been spent restoring our passenger car and locomotive in Assiniboia.

Our passenger car is in the process of being completely restored with the interior being removed including all of the seats and many coats of old paint. The exterior is also receiving an overhaul in preparation for a new coat of paint.

The locomotive has already been completely stripped of paint and has received a primer and a sealant. This is why she is green in the pictures below. We hope to have it painted black by the end of the week.

If all goes according to plan, we hope to have the exterior of both our locomotive and passenger car ready for display. This will allow us to continue to restore the interior of the car over the winter.

We will be providing updates more often over the next few weeks as we continue the restoration. In the mean time, please enjoy some pictures of the work that has been done so far.
