Newly restored Northern Alberta Railways caboose No. 13025 and GMD-1 locomotive No. 302, "Chief Moostoos," pose in the yard tracks at the Alberta Railway Museum on September 10, 2017. Museum volunteers have just completed a stunning $10,000 restoration of the 1953-built caboose. Much credit goes to Lukas Tyzuk, Barry Collis, Ivan Hall, John Watton, Ken Knutson, Jamie Macquarie and summer staff Christina Bardocel, Claire O'Brien and Anne-Marie Mizzi. The project included a new roof, windows, exterior painting and graphics, interior painting and upholstery repairs and upgraded electrical wiring. The matched NAR set was a feature of this year's Night at the Museum 2 photo shoot.
