Don’t panic next time you’re in Whitney Park in Porcupine, if the Hollinger gold mine train isn’t there.
This month, it will be moved to Gorf Contracting for restoration work, and be put back in the park next spring.
The locomotive was used to haul ore at the Hollinger. It’s part of a collection of artifacts at Whitney Park that includes the mine’s original vault, a drill and an electric engine.
They’ll each be outfitted with plaques explaining their historical significance, and the vault will be rehabilitated.
