Alberta Pioneer Railway Association: Project Accelerator Grant Recipient 2020

Alberta Pioneer Railway Association: Northern Alberta Railway Business Car “DUNVEGAN’ Restoration Proposal (2020 Project AcceleratorGrant Amount: $8,248)

The Northern Alberta Railway’s (NAR) business car, Dunvegan, is a jewel of the Alberta Railway Museum. With its open platform, brass railing, private bedrooms, and inlaid woodwork, it is a visitor favourite. NAR had its headquarters in Edmonton and was largely responsible for the development of northern Alberta for settlement, agriculture, and resource development. The Alberta Railway Museum will undertake an exterior restoration of this rare railcar, protecting it from further deterioration so that the museum can continue to tell the story of this ‘made in Alberta’ railway.
