  1. RE: My last posting should read 194. My apologies.

  2. Number 594 was originally 193 under the Newfoundland Railway and at one point wore the NR’s green tilted wafer with that emblem on the tender. Although they inherited 3 GE 47 Tonners from the NR, the first diesels from the CNR were Nos. 900 to 902 of the NF110 series, which came in late 1952. By 1960, a total of 47 900 class were delivered (38 of which were the NF210 series). The CNR also purchased 6 narrow gauge G-8′s for branchline duty in 1956. The Mikados and the occasional Pacific continued to haul passenger trains until the arrival of 5 Steam Generator Units built in Moncton in 1956 as all Newfoundland equipment was steam heated. Following this all steam engines were scrapped (with only a few units being sold to the Grand Falls Central – also later scrapped.) Only Pacific 593 has survived and is on static display in the City of Corner Brook.

  3. Most Newfoundland Railway locomotives and even the diesels built for CN after Newfoundland became the 10th Canadian province in 1949 were hybrids to some degree because of the NR’s 42 inch gauge. Not sure when CN introduced the first diesels to the island but, in 1952, the cross island St. John’s to Port aux Basques train was still steam-hauled. 594 was probably a Baldwin design adapted to a narrow gauge.

  4. Very cool – would this be a Newfoundland railway style or has the CN already influenced their locomotive ‘designs’ in 1952? Only three years since Newfoundland joined Canada.

  5. My gawd……..
