New rail safety exhibition to open at Exporail
The Railway Association of Canada (RAC) is pleased that Operation Lifesaver, a partnership initiative of RAC and Transport Canada, has announced a planned railway safety-themed exhibition at Exporail, the Canadian Railway Museum. The exhibition, set up in conjunction with CN, will cover a wide range of crucial safety issues, such as vigilance near railway tracks, technological innovation, and changes in safety practices and regulations.
In addition to providing substantial financial support for the exhibition, CN also donated diesel-electric locomotive CN 7300 to Exporail. The fully functional yard engine will be used to move rolling stock to prepare new exhibitions, present railway demonstrations and pull the passenger train that offers rides to visitors on Sunday afternoons.
