    Want to say this was the last 124 to leave Nanaimo, something like 12451 was ordered but never assembled? I can't remember exactly...

    124 was sold to Stokes Logging and replaced with this oldie 122 that came from Gisborne area right as I was leaving NZ. Didn't get the spec or serial plate off of it, but it had been around the block a time or two.
