Second 44, second career.  Built in September 1917 by the Canadian Locomotive Company of Kingston as TH&B 48, the little B-2-s class 0-6-0 would be renumbered in 1947 to TH&B 44 (first 44 renumbered 42).  The locomotive would be retired in January 1955 and sold to Stelco, eventually being scrapped at an unknown date.  The engine appears to be working around the Stelco-owned Hamilton By-Product Coke Oven Company facility.Many thanks to John Spring for information on the locomotive and location.Doug Page Photo, Bruce Acheson Collection Slide.

  1. Hard to imagine STELCO still on steam in the late 50’s….a lot of industrial switching transitioned to diesel in the late 40’s to mid 50’s …beautiful image, especially the old school STELCO logo on the tender….which also adorned STELCO “Nails” cardboard boxes … a bridge from Steelmaking to a common (and necessary) consumer product…..

  2. Is the locomotive actually under stream here or stored?

  3. What is coupled to.Looks like a Crain of some kind.Bruce
