Smiths Falls Gives Generous Gift to City of Brockville

Smiths Falls Gives Generous Gift to City of Brockville

Brockville – Smiths Falls is providing a bell to go back to the entrance of the Brockville Railway Tunnel. A heartwarming gesture and collaboration between neighbouring cities, turning a disheartening incident into a positive story.

“The City of Brockville expresses its sincere thank you to Mayor Shawn Pankow and the Town of Smiths Falls as well as the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario for the loan of this amazing railroading artifact. This gesture helps to turn a frustrating act of petty theft to an opportunity to be reminded how the railroad can both literally and socially connect our communities.”
Jason Baker Brockville Mayor

(As you’ll recall, a donated “locomotive bell” that was placed beside the railway tunnel was taken some time between the 24th of December and the 29th of December 2018. The bell weighs 250-300 pounds. Anyone with information is asked to call the Brockville Police Service at 613-342-0127 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Extra precautions will be taken to ensure the safety of this bell.)
