  • NRT RAILWAY HERITAGE: The Schoolhouse Museum at Meilleur's Bay continues to promote our area's rich railway heritage. The Reinwald family recently donated an exquisitely hand-crafted model trail made by their late father Bill. Ellen McQuestion, second from left, accepted the donation on behalf of the Rolph, Buchanan, Wylie and McKay Historical Society from three of Bill's children, John Reinwald, Kim Keuhl and David Reinwald.

  • Caboose has arrived

    North Renfrew Times

    CABOOSE ON THE MOVE: After nearly 20 years of resting in the backyard of George Viens' Chalk River home, this historic railway caboose was moved recently to a fitting new home at the Schoolhouse Museum run by the Rolph, Buchanan, Wylie and McKay Historical Society. Viens donated it to the museum in honour of the late Floyd McQuestion, a very good friend of his. “It's going to a good place. It's going to be looked after," Viens said of the caboose. The move was made possible through the hard work of many volunteers, and a heavy-lift crane from Canadian Nuclear Laboratories.

    The latest addition donated and moved to the museum ...a CPR Caboose. Thanks to many many people for all your work over the past months to make this happen. What a wonderful community we live in.
