7th Division exchange
There is a new free benefit for 7th division members. It is a Groups IO group called the exchange. This group is maintained by 7 Division for:
  • The exchange of modelling ideas amongst our local community
  • The buying/selling/trading of new or used model railroading gear of any sort.
    Membership is restricted to NMRA members and everyone in 7th division is encouraged to participate.
    To join open this Bulletin Board, go to page 8 and follow the instructions: Bulletin Board
    This extensive and valuable collection was originally gifted to the 7th Division by Mr. Jim Ferrier some 20-30 years ago. A number of people have spent many hours working to preserve and catalogue it, most notably Dick Sutcliffe, Doug Mayer, and Mike Barone. When the cataloguing described in Laura VanZant’s report is complete, the entire collection will be transported to the Canadian Pacific Historical Association (CPHA) facility in Cambridge, Ontario, where it will be electronically scanned. We are very grateful to the CPHA for their generous involvement. The shipping and storage costs will be paid by the 7th Division, up to anagreed maximum. The documents will then be returned to the Revelstoke Railway Museum (RRM) for permanent storage. They will be available both online and in Revelstoke to NMRA members, CPHA members, and those with access through the RRM. Ownership of the collection has been permanently transferred to the RRM. We believe that is the best way to ensure the collection is preserved for the future and administered by professional archivists. If, at some time in the future the RRM decides they no longer wish to retain it, the collection will revert to the 7th Division. John Martin Coordinator
