Peter Newman's great shot ( & story ) of the 1201 /  FP7-A  lashup (  a candidate for a RP's “ Hall of Fame “ );


 see:     on the Belleville Subdivision   


( and is that Frank Bunker at 1201's throttle ? )



...reminded me of another 1201 doubleheader:  the G5a / RS-18  lashup at Charney P.Q.


 ( G5a #1201 a June 1944, CPR Angus Shops, Montreal build – CN #3718 a 1957, MLW RS-18, Montreal build )


Ex CPR 1201 – owned by the National Museum of Science & Technology ( and operated by ? )  -  was attending  the 450th anniversary celebration of the founding of Stadacona ( Quebec City ) by Jacques Cartier.


Uncertain what ailed the 1201 on this assignment – perhaps a viewer may be able to elaborate.


June 26, 1984 Kodachrome by S.Danko.


More CPR / exCPR  steam, including a double header:


   Wakefield  


    West Toronto  


   Leaside

  1. I snapped this train at Daveluyville MP 67 and 3718 wasn,t there..

  2. Thank you, Mr. Danko, for your kind words and nomination! Not many people are aware that a telephone pole was embedded in 1201’s boiler during the restoration (the second shot in my sequence that day clearly confirms this). I also managed to blur the image and cut off some wheels. Not a snowball’s chance that Mr. Host and the moderators will let this photo squeak in. The only thing in focus is the engineer – and I’m 99% sure it isn’t the late Mr. Frank Bunker.
