Preservation Projects at a Glance

Protective Enclosure

Constructing a shelter over the locomotive is the most effective preventive measure to ensure its long-term preservation from the elements.​ 

 

Urgent & High Priority Needs​

​To be addressed as soon as possible to ensure that the site is safe for workers and visitors, and to prevent further deterioration and loss of original materials and parts.

Medium & Optional Priority Needs

To be addressed as time and funds allow, but does not have a direct impact on the deterioration of the engine and tender.

Abrasive Blasting & Painting

This project involves refinishing CN 2747 by cleaning the exterior surface with an abrasive blast media to remove the current paint and accretions underneath before applying a new finish.

A thorough conservation assessment of CN 2747 was completed by GP Heritage Consulting in 2017.  The final report outlines the above preservation needs of the engine, as well as recommended work with appropriate materials.
