815 sits by herself near the shop. This was my favourite engine. I chose it because of its older appearance compared to 1057. The high mounted old-style headlight adds to its good looks. There was another D-10 1087 similar in appearance to 1057 that could have been used. The cut-down tender provided better backup view for the enginemen. It was supposed to be the last engine for that reason.  The three engines had to run backing up for 5 miles from Lambton Yard to Union Station. However, by the time I arrived at Lambton roundhouse the power was already together on the outbound shop track and I did not want to disturb things even though I had provided instructions in writing to marshal them 136, 815, 1057. 
  815 had been the shop boiler at Trenton for the winter and prior to that the yard engine at Peterboro. I wanted to give her one last fling on the mainline. Alas, it was too much for the old girl. At Streetsville she needed water as the tank was down more than half while the smaller (4,000 Gallon) 136 was less than half used. Water was again taken at Inglewood and Cataract. Upon her return to Lambton the boilermakers condemned her boiler as having been badly burned. She was scrapped.

  1. Typo. End of first paragraph should read: 136, 1057, 815.

  2. I’m astounded by the sharpness and detail in these images. Your commentary is fascinating. Thank you, Sir.
