The model railroad display in the museum has been a labour of love. Through the combined efforts of local model railroader enthusiasts Gordon Robinson, Bill Handford, Keith Dowdell, Les Halliwell and an anonymous donation; a miniature railroad was created highlighting all the important features of the local area, primarily the Coal Branch.
Sadly, Gordon Robinson recently passed away. However his hard work and dedication to this project are appreciated and remembered everyday by the EDHS Board, Staff and visitors that come in to enjoy the railroad.
Today, the model is being worked on by local newcomer Howard Boulder. Originally from New Hampshire, Howard retired to the Peers area. He volunteered at an aviation museum for many years in New Hampshire creating various models of planes. Now Howard is using his expertise to create scale models of homes from Mountain Park and Cadomin. Be sure to come in and check out his additions to the model each week!
Thanks again to all for the hard work and dedication needed to create such fanastic representation of the railway industry in the Yellowhead.
