New England Postcard

 Boston bound CPR E-8 is seen at St. Jean, Quebec in July 1951. At this time the engine was only two years old.
 Railway Scenes 

Peter Mumby gave me a few New England railway scene postcards from his collection a few weeks ago. They were printed by Conestoga Press in Heathcote, Ont. Canada with no details of the photographers or the company that published the cards. They are gray-yellowing which leads me to believe they are from the 1960's or early 70's at best. I have cleaned them up a little so more of the details maybe seen. Peter has other postcards from this collection that are of Canadian Railways operating in Canada. These three postcards are connected to New England and shot in Canada or very near the border. All the postcard photos date from the early 1950's...enjoy...George
