Post subject:  The flanger arrives!

On Friday the Niagara Railway Museum Inc. in Fort Erie, Ontario welcomed its newest acquisition, ex-CNR Flanger #56323. Countless hours went into the planning for the move, and everything went very well. The car was moved from a company at the Niagara District Airport to our site in Fort Erie. Access to the site was very limited and a few things had to be arranged prior to the move since sticking up a crane boom 100ft in the air right beside a runway is not something one should be doing.

All in all it was a great day and i'm really pleased with how the move went. Had the job done in less than 8hrs. Now the restoration can begin. The full story with more pics can be found at http://nfrm.ca/blog/
