  1. Steve, thank you so much for posting this incredible shot of our beloved railway. An iconic image of the Newfoundland narrow gauge as it follows the contours of Conception Bay, hence the name it was given, the ‘Shoreline’. Viewers of this photo might be interested to know that the two coaches were once part of the consist of the ‘Caribou’, Newfoundland’s full service passenger train that was discontinued in 1969. Thanks for posting Steve and I hope to see more! – Ken

  2. Gorgeous place… I agree – very special. Wish I could have seen it! Parents did not take me out east as a kid… too bad ;)
