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.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
