Ontario - School on Wheels Railcar Museum

Clinton, ON - School on Wheels Railcar Museum. The CN School on Wheels #15089 was one of seven railway schools used as a highly successful method of reaching and teaching the isolated children and adults of the Northern Ontario wilderness between 1926 and 1965.

Car #15089 is one of the original school cars, and was thought to have been scrapped long ago, until found abandoned in the Toronto/Mississauga CNR rail yard in 1982. It was transported to Clinton to undergo renovation. Located in the beautiful park which bears his name, CNR School Car #15089 is also a memorial for Clinton native Fred Sloman, the "Dean of School Car Teachers," who lived and taught in this travelling school from 1926 to 1965.

Visitors will be amazed at how Fred Sloman and his family lived and travelled in this single railway car, bringing reading and writing skills to Canada's north.
