Virtual Events & Online Activities
To preserve and promote the community spirit of Transcona, through sharing our history and stories for the benefit of all.
The heart of Transcona’s vibrant history and culture.
Locomotive CN 2747
CN 2747 is the Transcona Museum's largest artifact. It was the first steam locomotive built in Western Canada, as well as the first constructed at the CN Transcona Shops in April 1926. Following its retirement in 1960, CN 2747 was placed on permanent outdoor display in Kiwanis Park (now, Rotary Heritage Park). The Transcona Museum acquired ownership of CN 2747 in late 2015. The museum remains dedicated to the ongoing preservation of this historic steam locomotive.
