I like to imagine The Canadian emerging from the water after crossing the ocean from Newfoundland.


A small disaster struck shortly after this peaceful looking photograph was made. While I was dissembling the train a couple of the rear cars fell into the water.


It doesn’t quite show in the photograph, but a fast moving stream is emptying into ocean below the log. The fallen cars were swept out to sea, and I jumped into the cold water to save them. Luckily the cars were wedged into the rocks. The train’s inevitable deterioration is an essential part of this project, but I don’t want to lose it!
