Each summer you can see the 1914 Vulcan chugging along the tracks at the WDM Moose Jaw as part of the Short Line 101. With the only operating steam locomotive in Saskatchewan, the Short Line 101 provides a unique experience to WDM visitors. Even with routine maintenance and annual inspections, the track is in need of repair. The WDM Moose Jaw has launched a fundraising campaign - $101K for the 101. Funds raised will allow the Museum to build a solid roadbed to support the track so the train runs smoothly, repair some sections of rail and switches and replace worn out ties. Plans are in place to build a shelter for the Vulcan locomotive, spruce up the route with landscaping and grow the Steam Locomotive Operation Training Course, so people can learn how to be steam locomotive engineers.
