The late Mr. Del Rosamond was a history enthusiast and an active volunteer at the Champlain Trail Museum in Pembroke.  What I find ironic is that he seldom dated his slides or provided any additional details.  Perhaps he never considered that his photography would be admired as a beautiful and historical collection of images documenting the final days of Canadian steam.  I suspect that he never would have imagined that this small portion of his portfolio would have 130,000 internet page views in just a year.


Shown here is Consolidation-type M4g,  #3528.  The Consolidation had a relatively small firebox and driver wheels no larger than 63”.  This limited both the steaming capacity and speed.  


This image probably dates around 1959.  I don’t recognize the location, but I’m pretty sure it isn’t Pembroke.  Internet research shows that this locomotive was maintained in North Bay, so that’s my guess.  Please add a comment if you can confirm the location
