  1. Awesome consist!

  2. Nice shot. I’m from Guelph, ON, so this bridge means a lot to me.

    On July 6, 1943, CNR 4-8-4 Confederation class locomotive 6167 (MLW, March, 1940) was involved in a serious haed-on collision with sister locomotive CNR 6166 on this bridge. The engineer of 6167, “The Regal Lady”, sadly perished in the wreck. Due to the war, both engines were needed and repaired. 6166′s damage was $35,000, and 6167′s was $40,000. In 1960, 6167 as put into excursion service, and remained so until retirement in 1964. She was retired due to the need for new boiler tubes and repairs to the whistle. Her last trip, a two day excursion on Saturday, September, 26 and Sunday, September 27, 1964 was a double-header with 6218, with 6167 leading. This was done to demonstrate the change of excursion locomotive from 6167, on her last run, to 6218, on her first excursion. 6167 sat in Georgetown until 1967 when 6167 was brought to Guelph. CNR decided to donate the locomotive to the City of Guelph during Canada’s confederation year, 1967. On the day of 6167′s final run from CN Guelph Junction (mile 49.79 on the GEXR Guelph Sub.) to her display site just east of the Guelph station (mile 48.8). The train order came directly from CN’s VP of operations, Douglas Gaunder, and read:


    Train order #6167

    Engine 6167 is to display signals and run as a first to CNR Guelph station, waiving all other pertinent rules, and to be considered a superior train. Expect tender, loving care and admiration during her extended stop in the Royal City.

    CNR 6167 has stood the test of time for 75 years, and remains as the only U-2-e class Confederation or “Northern” locomotives in existence.

  3. Wow that was a long drive for a picture!
