Prince George, B.C. – One step at a time, that’s how the Railway and Forestry Museum is proceeding with its pavilion plan and a couple of companies are helping to keep that project on track.

A&B Rail Services and Klein and Sons, donated their time to level and stabilize the track that will   be used by up to 10 railcars   to be under the shelter of the pavilion.

There are many steps yet to take says Museum Executive Director Ranjit Gil “Right now I’m trying to get logs so they can be milled for the construction of the pavilion.”   Some of the local lumber companies have made a commitment to donate   logs, and Gill is still working with others to see if they too will help out.

The pavilion is being constructed in a phase by phase plan as funds allow. Once complete, it will mean those with mobility challenges can have access to the historic rail cars, the collection will have at least some protection from the elements, and there will be an opportunity to enhance displays.
