National Engineering Month Public Display

The very detailed and impressive Marine Railway Cradle model will be on public display at the Halifax Central Library (5440 Spring Garden Road) on Saturday March 25, 2017, between 9 am to 2 pm.

Once again, this is part of an annual National Engineering Month event featuring a student Popsicle stick bridge and other design competitions.

Shubenacadie Canal Commission representatives will be answering questions and providing insights on how 150 years ago, boats moved overland between the harbour and Sullivan’s Pond, without the use of oil, gas, steam, electricity, wind, engines, or horsepower.

This overland route includes the Dartmouth Greenway park area. A life sized replica of the Marine Railway Cradle and Flume House has been recreated and is now onsite.
