As a memorial tribute to Duncan du Fresne, 1930-2012, the Society approached the Canada Science and Technology Museum with a proposal to restore the cab of CP 2858 to an as-built representation.
The museum agreed, and the Society's Dirty Hands Club volunteers, led by John Bryant, tackled the project.
The restoration allows museum visitors to see the inside of a steam locomotive cab as it would've appeared during it's working life.
The restored cab was formally unveiled at a special ceremony in April 2014 with Duncan's family as honourary guests.
