The North­ern On­tario Rail­road Mu­seum and Her­itage Cen­tre will be kick­ing off the start of its 25th sea­son in a big way on Satur­day with the re­turn of the 2nd An­nual Big Truck Meet Up Event.

This year, more than 30 pieces of equip­ment have been con­firmed, along with a spe­cial guest from the Dis­cov­ery Chan­nel’s hit tele­vi­sion se­ries, High­way Thru Hell.

“We are incredibly de­lighted to an­nounce that Al Quir­ing, along with his wife Nancy, will be fly­ing in from Van­cou­ver to spend the day with us and in­ter­act with our visi­tors,” Cody Cac­ciotti, op­er­a­tions man­ager for the mu­seum said in a re­lease.

“With the mu­seum celebrating its 25th sea­son and the town of Capreol’s cen­ten­nial year un­der­way, we re­ally wanted to do some­thing spe­cial and hav­ing Mr. Quir­ing at­tend the event is a per­fect fit.”

The event gives visi­tors of all ages the op­por­tu­nity to get up close and per­sonal with a va­ri­ety of big trucks and heavy equip­ment.

“Last year, we re­ally wanted to de­velop a new event that was ex­tremely in­ter­ac­tive and en­gag­ing for our visi­tors,” Cac­ciotti said. “We were over­whelmed by the ini­tial re­sponse and the level of com­mu­nity par­tic­i­pa­tion that we have de­cided to make the event a reg­u­lar part of our pro­gram­ming strat­egy.”

Tonka reps will also be on site and younger visi­tors can try their hand at the spin and win wheel to walk away with some free Tonka toys and swag.

The event will be run­ning from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will be free of charge to the pub­lic.

Be­gin­ning Satur­day, the mu­seum will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
