Digby Fast Train - Engine No.18




“Built as the second of two identical locomotives (No.17 was the first) for Yarmouth and Annapolis Railway (the briefly named Western County Railway in 1893) as Y & A No. 6 “Digby”.  It became Dominion Atlantic Railway No. 18 in 1894, keeping its old name.  As DAR No.18, this locomotive had the honour of pulling the first DAR passenger train from Halifax to Yarmouth and return October 1st, 1894.”
