Andonetta Cariati got her formal education in Canada at a rolling school during its monthly rail stops between Capreol and Foleyet, ON, in the 1950s. Cariati was flooded by memories as she stepped onto a replica of the school car unveiled Thursday at the Northern Ontario Railroad Museum and Heritage Centre in Capreol. The long, green rail car is separated into sections - bedroom, kitchen, living room and classroom. About half a dozen desks line the sides of the classroom, and a teacher's desk is set up at the front of the room complete with typewriter and globe. Cariati and her brother and sister went to classes on the train when they lived in Anstice, up the line from Capreol, for about five years. About once a month, the school car would roll into town and children of section men would learn from teacher Fred Sloman. He taught students along the rail line for four decades. Another former student, Tony Bevilacqua, also came out to see the train Thursday. He remembers going to the mobile school for a few years when he was a boy living in Ruel, about 50 miles up the line. "They would leave you a bunch of homework and come back three weeks or a month later. That's the way it went. They had other pit stops to make down the line," Bevilacqua said. Stu Thomas, president of the museum's board, said they are pleased with the newly converted school car. "We hope it's something people will come to see and walk away with a memory of," Thomas said. "It's something that a lot of people really don't know about." He said the museum is planning an expansion. "Our next project will be the development of the box car house," he said. Thomas said they have at least five more pieces of "rolling stock" that they plan to move on to the site at Prescott Park. It will require a track expansion and a switch so the cars can be moved around.
