Launching the Hornsby Appeal
In 2013, after nearly a decade of difficulties concerning the final fate of the artefact due to its condition and known significance, the Regional District of Mount Waddington, local government and owner of the artefact, will move the Hornsby Steam Crawler to a piece of public land in Coal Harbour, a community close to its historical area of operation around Holberg Inlet. While many steam aficionados understandably wish to privately own and restore this piece of history at another location, it belongs to the people of the Mount Waddington region and needs instead to be affordably and appropriately housed, protected and interpreted for future generations. To achieve this, donations and sponsorship are required.
