    That`s a darn shame :(

    I was past there in 84 on our way to a buddies farm near Middleton NS.
    I never did stop there.
    It could have been a lot worse.

    Another piece of history goes up in smoke. Sure looks like those fire fighters had a tough job on their hands.

    Too bad. We can't really afford to lose any more steamers these days, since so few were saved. :cry: :cry: :cry:

    I can't find this listed in the Trackside Guide. Can anyone gives details of the equipment?
