The Ogema Heritage Railway Association began as the Transportation Division of the Deep South Pioneer Museum in July, 2010. Southern Prairie Railway, the operating division of the Ogema Heritage Railway Association, has been in the process of being created for the last 4 years.
An engine and one passenger car have been purchased and fund raising has begun to bring the equipment to Ogema and restore them. The centennial celebration in 2012 is the target goal to have the train tour fully functional.
The train will be operating on the Red Coat Road and Rail Tracks. There are plans to have the train stop in Pangman as well as other communities. This is exciting news for Pangman as it will bring tourists to our community.
Can you help? They need 250 people to donate $200 each in order to purchase GE44 Tonner Diesel Locomotive. Or, 150 people to donate $150 each in order to purchase a Pullman 70 Passenger Car.
To donate please send your payment to the Town of Ogema, PO Box 159, Ogema, SK S0C 1Y0. For more information visit their website
