  1. Apparently this was the last trip for 815 due to boiler issues, she ended up being retired and scrapped: http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=17055

  2. 136 and 1057 survived. Did 815 survive or get the torch?

  3. In 1960 the Mavis Road area was considered Cooksville – but that is a minor quibble about a wonderful picture. Bravo Bill!
    I lived on Dundas Highway near Erindale Station Road at that time.
    I don’t recall my Dad taking me to the crossing to see the steam train. I’m sure I would have remembered a triple header like that.
