Another view of Canadian Pacific Railway 6275 (a U3e class 0-6-0 build by CP's Angus Shops in 1912) during its final year serving as Goderich's regular steam switching power, parked by the turntable near the roundhouse (front view here). In the background is the yard lead to the mainline, a few sidings, and some industries including the nearby grain elevator and silos.

Diesel-powered CP DT2 17 replaced 6275 as Goderich's regular switching power. The roundhouse was demolished, but the turntable survived well into the diesel era.

  1. What a fantastic scene!

  2. Perfect yard locomotive.

  3. Better yet, 6275 was preserved and has long been inside the Huron County Pioneer Museum in Goderich. She was the last 0-6-0 on CPR roster.
