Transportation History Presentation – A Fundraiser for Locomotive 6167 – Friday, April 30, 7:30 pm by Helmut Ostermann

By shost at 5:39 pm on Thursday, April 29, 2010
For those interested in Transportation History, I am planning to attend, as well as many others.
Guelph, Ontario:  On Friday, April 30, 7:30 pm Helmut Ostermann of
Waterloo will present a slide show, Striking Moments in Transportation
History, at Guelph Civic Museum. The presentation will include coverage
of early steam railway, streetcar, and interurban electric trains as
well as aviation, marine, vintage bus and automobile images. Most of
these images have never before been published. Mr. Ostermann has been
collecting historic original film images, primarily of rail, for thirty
five years. He runs a traditional photographic darkroom and sells
original silver black and white prints to fellow collectors and
enthusiasts.

Tickets to the presentation are $10 and available only at the door.
Doors open at 7 pm and the presentation is at 7:30 pm.

This is a fundraiser organized by the Restoration Committee of
Locomotive 6167. The mandate of the Committee is to carry out a cosmetic
restoration of Locomotive 6167 for the purpose of creating a static
display to interpret the history and importance of the railroad to
Guelph. Locomotive No. 6167 is one of three existing locomotives of this
type in North America. She was built in March 1940 and was one of 203
“Northern” locomotives used by Canadian National Railways for both
passenger and freight service between 1927 and 1960. The restoration is
currently underway and will be completed in 2011.

Guelph Civic Museum is located at 6 Dublin Street South. Please contact
Katherine McCracken at 519-836-1221 X2775 for more information.
