The reason for our travels to Newfoundland was to purchase and load this narrow gauge GE 25 Ton Locomotive. The small switcher had been declared surplus by the Bowaters Paper Mill in Cornerbrook. The Locomotive would find a new home in St Thomas Ontario on the 42 inch gauge Pinafore Park Railway. After the closure of the PPR the Locomotive was moved to Huntsville and is in operation on the Portage Flyer Railway.
