The Short Line 101 has been a huge part of Moose Jaw and the Western Development Museum since it's installation, with the 1914 Vulcan has been chugging along to the joy of many.

Sadly, like most things, it becomes run down and need repairs.

So, the WDM is now working hard to raise funds in their "$101K for the 101" campaign, and get the tracks going again.

The Museum is still trying to raise funds for the tracks but have already begun work.

"One update I can give on the tracks is that the construction company has come up and has actually taking away all of the old rails the set them to the side," said Karla Rasmussen with the WDM. "The old ties been taken away and then the old rail has been sort of smoothed out."The old wood that has been removed from the tracks

Reaching this amount so far was made possible by individuals and the citizens of Moose Jaw, and by contributors and sponsors like Canadian Pacific Railway, the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference, and the SaskTel Pioneers.

She also invites anyone to come and check out those smoothed out parts where the old tracks used to lie.

Even with work moving along, donations are still needed for the the tracks.

"The project has come along now as the name kind of alludes to we need to raise $101,000 to get the short line back on track and at this point in time and I'm happy to see that we're just passed the halfway point in the campaign so we raised over $60,000."

You can help by donating, as they are hoping to reach their goal by the end of the winter.

“There is absolutely no way to duplicate the smell, the sight or the feel of steam.” says Kathy Fitton, WDM Moose Jaw Manager. “We are looking so forward to being able to provide, once again, that authentic steam locomotive experience for our visitors!”
