By David F. Rooney
The fascinating Railway Witnesses: The Memory of a Nation exhibition jointly presented by the Revelstoke Railway Museum and Exporail, the Canadian Railway Museum, opens on Sunday. Casting back to the beginning of the Age of Steam and carrying visitors forward to the 21st century, this show is certain to enthral railway fans.
With an official public opening from 1 until 3 pm on Sunday, June 17, this should be one of the most interesting exhibitions at the museum in some time.
Jennifer Dunkerson, the Railway Museum’s energetic and personable executive director, is very pleased with the joint exhibitiion and has, herself, discovered pieces of railway history that even she didn’t know. We won’t tell you what those may be. You’ll just have to come to the opening on Sunday and find out for yourself!
In the meantime, here are a few photos we hope will whet your appetite:
