Vintage steam train, Prairie Dog Central Railway


Vintage steam train No.3 of the Prairie Dog Central Railway, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  While out picking Saskatoon berries and hiking with the dogs, we stopped by on the way home, mainly to scout out the location to photograph the train at a future time.


Up close to an Antique Threshing Machine. Manitoba Agricultural Museum, Austin, Manitoba, Canada.

For those who aren’t familiar, a threshing machine or “thresher” preceded the modern day combine.  This machine was a steam powered model on display at The Manitoba Agricultural Museum in Austin.  The museum houses the largest collection of vintage farm machinery in Canada, with over 500 implements and a large pioneer village.  I sort of stumbled upon the museum while photographing the prairie harvest, and regrettably didn’t spend much time there.  But, would certainly recommend a day trip for anyone interested in the history of farming on the Canadian Prairies.
