"Bullet Nose Betty" 4-8-2 CN 6070 is resting over the ashpit near Spadina Roundhouse in Toronto in 1955.
CN had 20 class U-1-F engines 6060-6079 built by MLW in 1944, retired by CN 1959-61. Three survive.
The tender is full of coal, likely filled at the coal tower on the other (west) side of Spadina Road Bridge.
Until 1962 the tallest building in the British Commonwealth was the Canadian Bank of Commerce tower (completed 1931), visible just left of CN's water tank.

  1. Quite possibly one of the most beautiful locomotive designs in North America. I’m blessed to have seen all three survivors.
    I can’t imagine taking a torch to one of these elegant ladies.
