An Overseas Visitor

Thirty four A4 locomotives were built in total. Dominion of Canada was built in Doncaster in 1937, that is just 25 miles from where she stands today, but she must have travelled hundreds of thousands of miles between then and now. Most of the A4 locomotives were named after birds, Dominion of Canada was to have been called Buzzard but received the name Woodcock instead. A Canadian Pacific railway whistle was fitted to her in honour of her change to her final name. She was withdrawn from service in 1965.
She is normally to be found at Exporail, Quebec but is back in the UK for 2 years.
