    Congratulations to Janice Udell for the beautiful work of the train, and congradulations to the Beautification Committee of Holyrood for all the hard work and dedication put into this project.
    Great job by all.

    I think the point of the shot is to show the unveiling part of it.

    It would be nice however for the telegram, or readers to post pictures of the entire painting at a later date.

    Nice painting!

    ...but what a pity one of those actual locomotives could not have been saved for public display. Can't blame CN for that one; the offer was actually made to the City of St. John's (and perhaps others) back in 1956 before the steam engines all went for scrap - but it was declined.

    To Gary the photographer, did you think about waiting just a few more seconds to take the pic so we could see the whole painting?

    IT IS THE UNVEILING OF THE PICTURE THAT IS WHY IT IS NOT THE FULL PICTURE! IF YOU WANT TO SEE IT GO AND VISIT THE SITE
