8 Jul to 9 Sep

Commemorating the end of Southern Steam

Come and find out about the Watercress Line's flagship steam engine, Canadian Pacific. This fast and powerful engine was built in Eastleigh Works in 1941 by a workforce made up of male and female workers. Affectionately nicknamed CanPac or CP she has had a fascinating 75 year life that began during the Second World War and when restored will continue. The restoration of this magnificent engine is part of a Heritage Lottery Fund supported project costing approx. £1.5 million. Throughout this exhibition there will be a fun train themed trail through the museum for children to enjoy - free with prizes for all correct entries.
