In this photograph, CP 6518 is sitting quietly near the steam era oil house @ CP Drake Street Yards. I stood back a distance from CP 6518 when I took its picture. I'm sure the idea at the time was to get a bit of the background items in as well. I guess this is what you do when you know you are running out of film. On the left side of the locomotive you can see the door leading into the old locomotive foreman's office. On the right side of the locomotive you can see 3 passenger cars, & one box car from the "BC Provincial Museum" train. The passenger cars are the "Skeena River", the "Kootenay River", the "Adventure", & the box car is the "Nanaimo River".
