Canadian Trackside Guide ??????
Author: stuart

Anyone have a current copy or withina year or two. Could you please look up the model and power used at the Smurfit-Stone Mill in Portage du Fort Quebec and let me know what it is. My dad works there and retires this summer and i have yet to ever see the locomotives, last thought they had 2 units, one was purchased in the last 10 years or less froma place in Chicago, just thought I would like to start looking for models of those units and pictures so I could model them for my layout

Your Dad works there, why not ask him? He could provide as much detail as possible, even if he is not a railfan.
