Loci 112 back home

The B.C. Railroad Historical Association made a donation to the Industrial Heritage Society to make the move possible.

The CANFOR steam locomotive—the 112 that has been sitting out in the weather for the last 45 years in Beaver Cove—was set on its permanent tracks on Tuesday, at the Alberni Pacific Railway roundhouse.

Nickel Brothers, a B.C. company that specializes in heavy moving, took care of the transfer between a static display near Port McNeill, down Highway 19 and across Highway 4 to the 112’s new home.
