The year is 1965. This locomotive at Culter Paper Mills Company is seen with the Rob Roy Bridge to the left and Malcolm Road in the background. The 35mm slide suggests that this is Locomotive P 1998/41. Can any ex-Mill employees give any additional information about the engine and what it's connection with the Mill was?Write comment (0 Comments)
