Exciting news in the plan to restore former T&NO steam locomotive #219, now you can help with the locomotive restoration and it won't cost you a penny!
In recent weeks, the Northern Ontario Railroad Museum and Heritage Centre has been hard at work finalising the plan to move 219 from Cochrane to Capreol (likely by rail) as well as tracking down various missing pieces of this historic locomotive. There is plenty of spirit to make this project a success, but it also needs funding.
This is where you come in: the #219 restoration project is part of Aviva's Community Fund. Community projects gaining the most votes will win a share of the $1 million fund. Starting today, anyone in Canada who registers on the Aviva Community Fund website can vote once a day for the project between October 22 and November 5.
Important: be sure to read the guidelines on Aviva's website to make sure your votes count.
