Here the 136 is spotted in a perfect rods-down pose has been turned and coupled to the rear two wooden coaches for a short runby at the bottom of the yard to recreate an old style consist. Looks like Bill Stewart is backing the 1057 in to place to spot it under the chute to coal up. That tank-like structure set on an angle was a modern style small coal tower. It replaced an old wooden structure.   
That mark on the bottom of 136’s smokebox was created from being melted by the burned hot cinders that piled up against it. This plugging up was a common thing on light engines but was this was severe and had already been shoveled out in a huge pile at Inglewood when we stopped to take water and stage a short runby.  Water had already been taken at Streetsville and would again be taken at Cataract this being all four places on the Orangeville Subdivision that had water tanks.
