  1. MrDan is correct, its just stuffed and mounted at a little museum.

  2. It’s been preserved here for a while (donated c.2001). It was originally acquired from GN by Western Dominion Coal Co. in 1960 and used for many years by a few different Saskatchewan coal companies for switching. By this point its spent most of its life in Canada.

    Ironically, the WCRA in Squamish painted up their RS1 (an ex-Minnesota & St. Louis RR unit, recently de-accessed from their collection) as GN 182.

  3. I assume it’s not in service….
