The Dominion of Canada Has Arrived
The Dominion of Canada has arrived in Halifax, on CN 120 as mentioned earlier. The above shot by David Tindall through the fence at the Ceres terminal shows the two steam engines parked, waiting for the Atlantic Conveyor to come pick them up next Tuesday September 25 to begin their journey across the Atlantic.
Matt aka Saintjohnrailfan caught the Dominion of Canada on CN 120 en route.
They are headed over to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Mallard's world steam engine speed record. Here is a nice web site listing all of the festivities.
Thanks to David Tindall, David Othen, Bob Liming and Matt for information, photos and video.
