Dominion of Canada on the Move

338. DoC loaded and about to be sheeted over.
The Dominion of Canada, a British-built A4 steam engine, has almost completed its journey from the Canadian Railway Museum in Delson, Quebec to the docks in Halifax, Nova Scotia for its trip to England. You may remember that its sister, the Dwight D. Eisenhower, traveled to Halifax in mid August. The two are going to join their A4 sisters for the 75th anniversary of the world record performance of fellow A4 engine Mallard.

Here's its journey so far:
  • September 11: Delson, QC. CP took the Dominion of Canada to CN's yard (pictures)
  • September 13: Montreal, QC. Left CN's Taschereau yard for Joffre, Quebec.
  • September 14: Joffre, QC. Arrived late afternoon.
  • September 15: Joffre, QC. Departed on CN 308 around 8 AM.
  • September 16: Moncton, NB. Shunted onto CN 120 outgoing track.
  • September 17: Arrival in Halifax, NS on CN 120?
Moveright has a new Flickr photo set for the Dominion of Canada move. Check it out, they are really good. The photos in this post are from that set.

What a funky looking train. I hope it's just visiting England and will be back home to live ?
