You may have heard about Streetcar 356, if not, a history of 356 from Heritage Winnipeg's website. With her 100th anniversary coming up in 2009 there is movement to get her restored by then !
On the promotion end, if you're on Facebook there is a "Restoration of Streetcar 356" group with a lot of great historic photos and some other memorabilia. For non-Facebookers there's a site coming soon on the www with the same information and pics.
On the fundraising front, buflyer has done a great job designing some t-shits for sale via cafepress. There is also going to be a batch of them made locally that will be available for sale sale at assorted heritage fairs and other special events, the first of which will be in September (details to come) proceeds go to the restoration project.
