Forth brick found in Newfoundland, Canada

Found by Peter Shapter in the at Kelligrews, Newfoundland, Canada.

Peter states – It was found near an abandoned railway track so it may have been in a firebox of a locomotive. If my suspicion is correct it had a firebox for coal. But it may have been converted to oil-fired in its last days in service. After Newfoundland joined Canada the Canadian National Railways literally dumped the steam engines over the side of a cliff near the track. They then started using diesel locomotives.
