Rail Days 2016 & Backtracks - the story of Winnipeg's Streetcars

Post Rail Days event update:

Thank you to everyone who came to visit us at the annual Rail Days. It was a fantastic event with over 850 people coming to visit the Railway Museum located at Via Rail Winnipeg station at 123 Main Street over two days in September. We had a great time showing guests the original wooden Streetcar 356, and chatting with everybody who stopped by he Heritage Winnipeg table.  Our rehabilitation project of Car 356 is expected to be completed in 2019 for the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 1919 General Strike.

In additon thank you to all of the volunteers/members of the Streetcar 356 committee who helped make this exhibit a great sucess!

If you would like to help support this Heritage Winnipeg project, make a minimum donation of $20 to Streetcar 356 and receive a complimentary DVD of BACKTRACKS, The Story of Winnipeg's Streetcars, including bonus historic pictures.
