Only ten days before Arnold Mooney's shot of CN 6060 passing over the CN Cayuga/CR Canada Div tracks (Photo 42283) I had ridden the sidetrip from the Falls to Yager with my cousin Steve, who is now a driver at GB Railfreight in the UK. I was 17 when I took this shot of the run-by at Yager.  You can see the last coach is still on the bridge shown in Arnold's photo.

  1. Damn. That’s nice.

  2. I’m lucky. I got to ride behind 6060 three times when I was growing up in Toronto. such a beautiful engine. And great photo!

  3. Beautiful. It is easy to see why us fans were so captivated by this engine when we were treated to a display like this!!! I checked my notes and on this day I shot the 6060 barreling by the St. Kitts station on its way back to Toronto. Fun times !!!

  4. CNR made a major mistake by retiring this locomotive a second time. Bring her back. Now.

  5. Yeah, right. Talk about having a Heritage Unit !!!!

  6. @PRR5406, talking is easy, actually doing is hard. If you really want to see steam operating again, start supporting local railway organizations and start fund raising!

  7. Mr. Goff, you don’t know me very well. Look up http://www.newenglandsteam.org

  8. Richard, honestly, I didn’t know that either, and most of us didn’t… your passion for restoration of steam is clearly evident :)

    Thanks for being involved. :) and for being a great advocate. We know around here it’s really hard to get people to take action.
