Dale returned to life at 10:10pm on Sunday June 22, 2003, when the RO-D
ran for the first time in over 20 years. However, prior to that, while trying to
install the idler pulley for the belt, the casting that holds the idler pulley broke
(a very old aluminum casting).
March 28/2002: Dale has been stripped down to the frame for steel replacement.
The Niagara Falls Railway Museum is pleased to announce we will be honouring the memory of
NAPA member Dale Henry by purchasing and restoring a motorcar that was in his collection of
antique power equipment.
Once restored, the car will carry Dale’s name as our tribute.
The photos below were taken in March of 2001 and show the car in its “before” condition.
