Our Goal: To build a protective structure over CN 2747 to help protect the locomotive from the elements, increase security, and provide more opportunities for the public to see, interact, and appreciate the engine.

The Enclosure Details

The main purpose of the enclosure is to have the engine protected from the elements, vandalism, and theft.  CN 2747 has been on permanent, outdoor display since 1960 and this has caused damage to the overall condition and stability of the engine.  An enclosure will help to extend the lifespan of the engine from less than 10 years (as outlined in a 2017 condition assessment), to long into the future. The estimated construction costs are $492,942. The chosen conceptual design best addresses the preservation and display goals of the project:

  • An all-metal structure reduces combustible materials

  • Metal roof and back wall to reduce exposure to elements

  • No exposed roof trusses to prevent bird roosting

  • An enclosed back wall with two doors for access

  • Open sides and front for visibility of the engine

  • An accessible, ground-level concrete pad

  • A metal staircase to provide safe access to the cab

  • A three-sided, 8-foot-tall fence for security

  • Appropriate lighting throughout the structure

Your Support

We are now beginning to actively solicit donors and sponsorships to help us make this project a reality. The estimated construction costs are $492,942. Donations are tax-deductible. There are different levels of donation available, as well as different elements available for sponsorship.  We would be pleased to discuss those categories and the various means of recognition including, but not limited to:

  • Recognition on the CN 2747 Enclosure Donor Wall (starting at $50)

  • Recognition through media announcements

  • Recognition on the Transcona Museum website and social media

  • Public recognition a the Grand Opening

Your support means that you understand just how valuable preserving CN 2747 is to the community of Transcona, Winnipeg, and Canada.  This project would be difficult to achieve without your support.  We hope we have inspired you to GET ON BOARD.

在安養長者而言,吃也是非常重要的,不單只是吃的好吃而已,而是吃的營養又健康。而營養組包含廚房組22人(包含組長及副組長)及營養師,所以菜單也都是經由營養師來計算熱量及營養素,而有美味及健康的餐點。

而一個禮拜也有兩次的快樂餐供應,並且針對特殊節慶有特別菜單供應,例如:過年有圍爐、端午節有粽子等,可讓住民吃的開心又好吃。 同時也有營養師會針對住民狀況做個別的營養諮詢,針對長者個別禁忌或疾病,可討論長者在中心如何進食。團體營養衛教的分享,更可以了解長者平日如何進食,使長者吃的營養又健康。
