The Transcona Rotary Club plans to move locomotive 2747 from its current location to the new Transcona public library.

Kudos to Coun. Russ Wyatt, the Transcona Rotarians and the Winnipeg Railway Museum for such a creative solution to save and promote a heritage engine -- and create a much-enhanced experience for library visitors (Reading and the railroad, July 5).

The coupling of these two entities creates a solution bigger than the sum of both parts. This seems to be the so-called silo-breaking, the "rowing in the same direction" methodology as described by Bob Chrismas in Shared responsibility only solution to social problems (July 5) when he recommends coming together to create an enhanced solution.

I hope the Rotarians raise the funds for the project. I would definitely visit the library just to experience the engine looming among the book stacks.
