Section of rail from Blaenavon Iron & Steel Co

The following email and photo was sent to us from British Columbia, Canada.

"I thought I would let you know that we’re still using a section of rail from the Blaenavon Iron & Steel Co. which was manufactured in 1884. The BC Forest Discovery Centre (Duncan, BC) is a non-profit museum whose mandate is to collect forestry artifacts from Coastal BC. We’ve no records showing where it where it came from – though possibly through the construction of the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway (E&N) which was completed in 1886."
