CP 437136 waits out the weekend in front of the Peterborough station. Ex CPR 4-6-0 1057 was to arrive later on an excursion but was short turned at Dranoel due to a running gear issue. The station lost it's canopy a few years later. The schedule board for Dayliner service probably went at the same time. The caboose was preserved in White River. Some details in this photo, 437136 is sporting a backup whistle. The silver post in front of the canopy was the "circuit end" sign for the crossing of George Street. Behind the caboose is Rehill Building Supply which still had a siding and coal pile. Photo probably taken by my Mother with editing assistance by the RP folk.

  1. 1057 short-turned? Sounds like something that would have happened if I was there. Nice old ‘rural’ scene.
