Come and find out about the Watercress Line's flagship steam engine, Canadian Pacific. This fast and powerful engine was built in Eastleigh Works in 1941 by a workforce made up of male and female workers. Affectionately nicknamed CanPac or CP she has had a fascinating 75 year life that began during the Second World War and when restored will continue. The restoration of this magnificent engine is part of a Heritage Lottery Fund supported project costing approx. £1.5 million. Throughout this exhibition there will be a fun train themed trail through the museum for children to enjoy - free with prizes for all correct entries.
