Luggage Cart Renovations

CHAPS is restoring a luggage cart once used at the Cochrane Railway Station.

Mike Taylor and Lonnie Basiuk are leading the project. They have disassembled and examined each of the parts. While well constructed, they’ve discovered most of the wood needs replacing. The metal parts will be sand blasted. The cart will soon be painted, reassembled and join the collection of the Cochrane Historical Museum.

It is well crafted, notice the arch.
Douglas Fir in the hitch has stood up well.
Wood has shrunken over time.
