I was in Fredericton yesterday for a meeting and I decided to take full advantage of being in close proximity to the Provincial Archives. My visit yesterday only allowed me 45 minutes but Fredericton is only 2 hours away.
I also brought pieces 1, 2 & 3 with me on my trip to show them to a work colleague (Daryl Demerchant) who just so happens to be a locomotive enthusiast. I have suspected for a while that those pieces where from the engine, more specifically the braking system. Daryl seemed to agree with me and thinks he has a book at home that has a lot of engineering specifications and drawings for locomotives of that era. We may now have relics of the mysterious engine in hand.
