Well the big move of steam locomotive CN 6167 is upon us. With the expansion of the GO facilities at the station, it was either scrap, sell or relocate this consist that has been a fixture in Guelph for many years so the decision was made to move it to a new location along the Speed River. With the tender already being slowly backed in to its new location by the Mammout transport truck in the background, CN 6167 sits on the remotely controlled trailer at the stop lights at Macdonell Street awaiting its turn to be fitted in to its new home.

  1. I can only imagine the crowds out for this!!

  2. I can see they had to import a trailer from Europe for this move.

  3. There was a lot fewer than I expected. It was also being streamed on line.

  4. The move money would have gone a long way towards restoring her to operation. Glad she’s preserved, but this was short sighted.
