    Back in the early 1980s I saw GMRC 405 turned in North Walepole, seen engines turned on the D&H in Rouses Point NY and on the CV in St Albans VT. I also helped turn CPR 1201 in Wakefield Que on an "arm strong" turntable.



    You've lived a sheltered life Chris!

    The original firehall is right behind the truck. When I became a firefighter here in Brockville I showed up 15 minutes before my first training session and met another volunteer who was once a Captain with the Lawrencetown VFD (also on the DAR). He was a Baptist Minister who was transferred to Brockville and after leaving Brockville eventually was transferred to the church in Canning that is just to the right of the old firehall. The new firehall is in the apple warehouse right across the tracks from the site of the station. Small world.

    A working turntable in Kentville? Looking forward to spinning some locomotives for the crews!

    Tried twice to send you a PM Shawn but neither one shows up in my sent box, so don't imagine either made it out.

    Feel free to try again Paul. Apparently I had the max messages in my inbox (60). So I just deleted them all.

    Also not sure if you are aware, I do have an new email as well.
