The Business Car "British Columbia" Arrives

In 1983, the museum acquired a new temporary executive office when CPR donated its business car "British Columbia," one of five to have borne that name over the years. Although never part of the Trans-Canada Limited, it was built in the same era and now serves as a display example for railway business accommodations. It also happens to be completely original, so it did not require the same degree of intervention most of the other cars did. A familiar sight around Cranbrook and the general area for many years, the car arrived at the museum in fine condition, with everything on board except its assigned CPR cook and attendant. Canadian Pacific has been an excellent partner with the Museum, making donations and transporting cars to Cranbrook from across Canada.
