Running Extra.


Designed and manufactured in Canada, 


MLW serial number 72757 - Circa October 1944 


Wheel bearings check and lubrication stop – note the bearing lubrication jugs on the platform beside the tender.


At CN Belleville April 29, 1979 Kodachrome by S.Danko


Noteworthy: For a road that recently (1978) sold off all of the passenger equipment – except commuter - one can imagine the conversation in the General Manager's office: the steamer is at Spadina, the charter next weekend is from Central Station...hmmm... 


Running Extra: head end white markers and white flags. 


Note: markers (oil lamps) on the tender and at left the out of service semaphores signals at the Operator shack.


Quite the sight, even in 1979
