Very nice! I especially like the last one, which is a CD 136.4, known as the 'Canadian Boston'.

PS. I see you added more since I posted, and that you know what the insulator marked 'CD ?' is.

And that youalso found a GNW slug plate and a Great North Western!

Hi Jack,

Can you post any pictures of the actual dig in progress (Without giving away the actual site of course), I 'd love to see some of those insulators coming out of the ground.

Thanks,
Chris
