Found dismantled in a lumberyard. Now carefully conserved.
- Tudy - I love this shot Dale.. it almost looks unreal or miniature.. as if its a toy.
- sherle - Isn't it beautiful!!?! Can you imagine? That front thing is called a cow-catcher! ;-)
- btezra - ~a fine capture of an icon of transportation~
- Robin - Terrific image for the theme!
- Lorien - That's a beautiful machine... and a great photo, Dale.
- (no link) - Unable to contact you through your contact address.... Looking for a possible image for a collection of railway stories collected. Would you be able to give your permission the Countess of Dufferin image to be used as a possible cover? I hope to have the title of the book issuing forth in a stream of smoke.
- (no link) - Dale: I was looking for info regarding the "Countess" due to the fact that , I believe, my grandfather drove this engine into Winnipeg in 1877. My father has given a medal to the same museum, that was given to my grandfather for this occassion. Do you have any info. regarding who the engineer was at that time. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
