While visiting the Simcoe County Museum\'s annual fall \"Steam-up\" we happened upon ex-CN 4-6-0 1531 which had recently been transplanted from a relatively barren and unattractive section of Barrie\'s waterfront. Unfortunately the old ten-wheeler was not one of the machines in condition to be steamed up, but there were several pieces of equipment working away that day down in the gravel pit - our favorite was an old coal-fired steam shovel that clinked and clanked as it loaded gravel into a couple of vintage dump trucks.
