Hankai Electric Railway (Osaka) No. 247 was built in 1921 by Umebachi/Sharyo. It remained in service in Osaka until 1990, when it was acquired by the Edmonton Radial Railway Society. It saw first service in 1995 with the help of a generator trailer and finally made the first trip across the High Level Bridge under overhead lines in 1997.  Seen here on Thanksgiving weekend, the final weekend of operations for the 2022 season, it has just cleared the High Level Bridge northbound on it's way to the Jasper Avenue terminus.
