CN U1b Northern 6133 (built by MLW in 1927) is pictured awaiting its next assignment on the ready tracks at Mimico Roundhouse in 1958. Mimico was one of the main CN freight yards in the Toronto area at the time, and the roundhouse boasted a good stable of the big 4-8-4 Northerns, even in the waning years of steam.
