AVONDALE ARTWORK. The green and yellow tilted wafer of the former Newfoundland Railway has been accurately recreated on ex-CN Tool and Office Work Car 5015. Originally built as CNR RPO 1803 by CC&F in 1952, it was converted to work service after the end of RPO service in October 1968. Today the tilted wafer adorns this beautifully restored car as NR RPO 233 in its resplendent red and black livery on display near the oldest wooden station in Newfoundland at Avondale.

  1. Thank you mile27! The NR’s tilted wafer adorned not only the passenger equipment in the 1940′s but was also applied to the tenders of the steam locomotives until takeover by the CNR in 1949.

  2. Neat herald from the past.
