Wickham cars were built in Wickham, England. Only four of these cars were ever transported to Canada. The Canadian Pacific M-297 Wickham car (maroon) was built in 1955. The Canadian National 23 Wickham car (green) was built in 1954.
Wickham cars were used for rail inspection and track crews. The cars could carry up to nine people in a climate-controlled enclosure, which is bi-directional. Speed wise, the Wickham cars were comparable to a car on a highway. In the past the museum was able to offer rides on the Wickham cars but these rides are no longer available.
