Unnumbered GE Center Cab (likely #4) is back on switching duty shuttling around gondolas of pig iron on the property of the Canadian Furnace Division of the Algoma Steel Corporation.  In the background is the 750' tall INCO (International Nickel) stack in an active role until Electrolytic Nickel production ceased a few years after this photo was taken.  The stack was removed by the mid 90's.  The white brick building in behind was originally the Cronmiller & White Brewery, constructed in 1855 by Jacob North, producing the iconic "Maple Leaf" Beer.  The building still stands today.  The locomotive was on the property from 1949 (new) till 1981, and is now part of the Colorado Railway Museum, Golden Colorado (repainted in black and numbered as - #4), courtesy Paul O'Shell - #4 information.
