By becoming a member of the Rocky Mountain Rail Society, you lend important support to the preservation of 6060. You will receive Steam Rail News every two to three months which will let you know when and where the locomotive will be operating and also contains mechanical reports, colour photos, and other stories of railway interest. In addition, you can join work parties that involve 6060 and the rolling stock that the RMRS is preserving. You can also volunteer for events within the local railfan community in which the society participates.
Our Board & Members
President // Kevin Quigley
I have always been intrigued by mechanical objects (particularly transportation equipment such as cars, trucks, trains, and airplanes). I also maintain an appreciation for Canadian history. Nothing combines those two interests more perfectly than a steam locomotive!
Treasurer // Zachary Brewer
Zachary Brewer has been involved with Rocky Mountain Rail Society since 2006 and has served as Treasurer since 2011. Working with RMRS has allowed Zachary to merge long-standing interests in historical preservation and steam technology with his current “day job” in the railroad industry, working as a Conductor and Locomotive Engineer in Revelstoke, B.C.
Vice-President // Don Wilson
With 30 years of experience in the transportation safety industry, Don brings considerable regulatory experience, many valuable contacts and strategic management experience to the RMRS board.
Director // Rich Graydon
I’ve always had an interest in transportation history. When I was younger it was airplanes and model trains. As life progressed, I didn’t have the time or opportunity to really pursue either hobby seriously until 2009.
Secretary // Brian Henderson
Brian has had an interest in trains and railways from an early age. Brian has recently joined the Rocky Mountain Rail Society. He remembers the 6060 locomotive stored in Calgary at the old Cominco fertilizer plant in the 1980s. He has a dream of seeing the locomotive fully operational again.
Director // Harry Home
I knew exactly what my life career was going to be after a brief ride with my Dad on a Consolidation steam engine in 1940 at Hanna Alberta. I was 7 years old. My railroad career began at Boston Bar, BC on 28 July 1949 with the Signal Gang (86 cents an hour for a 48 hour week).
