CPR 1057.  The remains of a beautiful locomotive, sit silently at the South Simcoe Railway yard in Tottenham.  Presumably a part source for 136, this engine was retired because the engineer thought it was not a good engine to run (according to my sources).  RIP 1057.

  1. Thanks for posting this image, Jacob. After so many years, it was great to see a shot of #1057! I was inspired to search out and visit the South Simcoe Railway web site. I was disappointed that I found very sparse information there. Is it possible that someone knowledgeable with the current status of #1057 could provide an update? I’m sure that I’m not the only viewer who is curious and interested.

    Btw… I think it is Awesome to see some younger photographers submitting their work here on RPca!

  2. When 1057 was running, I was told it used a lot more coal so 136 was the preferred engine

  3. Probably just stored until eventual overhauling, with all the neat bits removed to prevent never-do-wells from removing them. 136 and 1057 are two different models of steam locomotive, so there would be little if any common parts between the two.
