As one of those steps, NAR 302 "Chief Moostoos" now takes her rightful place as a cornerstone of the collection along with road diesels 9000, 6514, 6614 and switchers #4 and 7944.
We must never forget that we preserve a unique part of Canada's railway history.
Attached is a graphic of 9000 from CN a few decades ago.
I am proud to be a part of the APRA and to work with such a dynamic board as we move forward facing many tasks. There are some new ideas in the works. They will give more purpose and vision to the next year and the years beyond. Let's work together as we concentrate on preserving and interpreting this collection which is a significant part of our heritage.
For you and yours, please accept my best wishes for a New Year filled with satisfaction and achievement.
