As part of the Canada 150 Celebrations Alberta Prairie Railway staged two train operation with a demonstration freight train as well as the usual passenger train.  While switching in the yard and getting everything set up the two locomotives provided a nice side-by-side pose.  In front is Alberta Prairie's 2-8-0 #41 and behind, on loan from the Alberta Railway Museum in Edmonton, is 2-6-0 1392.

  1. Great picture Colin ! Just a little note, 1392 is a 4-6-0,
    used to chase some of her sister 4-6-0’s around southern Ontario in the later 1950’s

  2. 1392′s ditchlights were added years ago (during the 1990s I believe) to satisfy Transport Canada requirements for mainline running. The second dynamo was added to power them, as the added load would have been too much for just one dynamo to handle.

  3. Interesting ditch lights on the 1392.
    If I was a steam engine and given the choice, I would go for the big whistle too. That one looks darn impressive. :-)

  4. As pretty as any centerfold!

  5. If you care to go to photo ID 9409 you see this loco in Central Western days as #9, and without the big whistle.

  6. Fantastic! This is great to see in 2017. That is a BIG whistle on the 41.

  7. Beautiful shot!
