  1. I am seeking history of the New Brunswick Southern Railway at the beginning of the 20th century. I know of one image of a NBS wooden flat car built by Rhodes Curry & Co @1900-1905 and would like to know more of the history of the NB Southern Ry of that time period.
    Appreciate any information on this rail line you can provide.

  2. Fredericton born and now I am 75. So you can imagine how much I am looking forward to viewing,
    “the good old days”.
    With regards,

  3. Hello New Brunswick, hello Clair (former village) area,
    – Who knows where in NB following RCAF airman is mentioned + honored, via a local War Memorial (but likely not in his home village ever, Clair (on the St. John River): it’s about F/Sgt. (Pilot) Benoit Albert Levasseur, born on Sat. 9th Nov. 1918, son of Oscar Levasseur (1888-1969) and of Délina Cyr (their family grave is in the Saint Francois d’Assise Churchyard). He is Missing In Action (MIA) overseas, over the coastal waters of Friesland / the Netherlands, in NW Europe – likely off Vlieland island – since a mine-laying mission, on 18/19th Febr. 1943, as the ‘skipper’ of No.419 ‘Moose’ Squadron HP Halifax Mk.II bomber DT639. Please, if known more, give us a reply. Best regards, Willem de Jong, Friesland / NL (volunteer researcher).
