Trains

 

         When you come in the yard you will first notice a few railway items that you may not expect to find in a plant nursery.  This is Andrew’s passion as a collector of railway antiques and artifacts.

         The first thing you will see is the Caboose.  Built by Canadian National Railways in their Point St. Charles Shops in 1976.  This Caboose was used as the office of the Conductor at the end of the freight trains in Canada.  We purchased the Caboose from CN in 1998 as the railway was downsizing its fleet.  It was shipped to Truro by rail and trucked to its present location.
