Rail Dock for Coquitlam Northern

 

Lorne has created an excellent addition to our harbour at the BAMM pond in Burnaby in this rail dock for the Coquitlam Northern rail barge.  Not seen here inside the engine shed is a fully detailed miniature flat-head engine that would have been used to run the dock hydraulics.  April 29, 2012
