Caption: Canadian National U1b-class Mountain 6028 (built by CLC in 1924) is shown in the Stratford scrapline in 1959, not long before it would meet the torch. 6028 had been used to pull the 1939 Royal Train, thus the wide number side panels along the running boards. During those duties, it also wore crowns on the front running boards (a la what CP's Royal Hudsons had) and a royal crest in place of its number plate under the headlight.
