Forestry Museum Gallery
Our outdoor display area is the Willingdon Beach Trail, which is maintained by Forestry Museum members for the enjoyment of the public
For 2013 we hope to restore and install the steam hammer on the trail
We finally got the Bucket and dipper stick installed on the 1941 WildeRoad Power Shovel along the Willingdon Beach Trail Oct 20 at a rainy work party attended by Rudi van Zwaaij, Dan Parsons, Don Carto, Jim Gamble, Stephen James, Hans Maurer, Chet Fee, Phil Kemp, and Dave Florence. We also installed the Bull Block donated by Jiggs Behan's family, and lifted the Steam Hammer to begin planning for a restoration to begin in 2013. Thanks to Dave and Phil for photos. (See the adjacent folder for the Bull Block photos)
In July 2012 we were offered a large bull block by the Behan family, which we stored at Don Carto's place. We installed it Oct 20, 2012 next to the Steam Donkey. A plaque "in memory of Merlin "Jiggs" Behan is attached to the Bull Block.
