Donate Supplies & Equipment towards the Restoration of Steam Locomotive No. 9


Our heritage Steam Locomotive No. 9 is undergoing some much needed restoration. Our goal is to have it look as new as it did when it first pulled out of Montreal Locomotive Works back in 1923. When it is completed, passengers of Waterloo Central Railway will truly get to experience history brought to life as they witness this 97 year old steam locomotive pulling our heritage passenger coaches. Enjoy not only supporting the only regularly operating steam locomotive in eastern Canadian, but learning about all of the unique equipment and custom work that goes into restoring a steam locomotive.

As a thank you, everyone who donates one item from our Donations Store will be invited (along with one guest) to a special Steam Excursion Train Ride upon No. 9’s completion.

Thank you for supporting our restoration programs and our efforts to preserve the history of railways in Canada.
