Z is for Zero Of course!

We looked all over Central BC Railway and Forestry Museum for the best zero to bring to you all and finally decided on the luggage scale currently residing in Penny Station.

This is an example of a station platform scale that would have typically resided at a railway station. These pieces of equipment were used by railways to weigh luggage and goods to ensure there wasn’t too much loaded on the train and also to calculate charges for transport. Because of their comparatively small size, these scales were only used to weigh small amounts of goods brought by passengers or being shipped by individuals.
