n Af­ter the First World War, mem­bers of Canada's leg­endary Group of Seven trav­elled on the Al­goma Cen­tral Rail­way to sketch the area’s gor­geous scenery.

For these sketch­ing jour­neys, the painters re­pur­posed a red box­car as a mo­bile stu­dio with a stove, bunks and fur­ni­ture as well as a ca­noe and hand-pump rail­car.
