CP 3632, a class N2A 2-8-0 built by CLC in 1911, was one of CP's last steam engines in regular service. 
It served at Port McNicoll Ontario in the last month of regular steam operation on the CPR, April 1960.
This image dated May 1960 appears to be outside Lambton roundhouse (with its numbered smoke jacks).
CP 3632 is in steam and getting some attention - note the steam dome cover is off, temporarily placed on the sand dome. The guys at bottom left might be taking a break from this activity.
In the background CP 8558, an RS-10 built by MLW in 1956, is on the roundhouse turntable.

  1. How badly worn out or neglected were CNR and CPR steamers by the end of their service time? In the US, deferred maintenance was more the rule. I think Canadians were perhaps a bit more cautious? Anyone know for certain?

  2. Bill Thomson’s colour front-left image of this engine at Port McNicoll is recommended: http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=21826

  3. I worked during last years of steam (1956-60) at Lambton roundhouse and John Street roundhouse as well. I can assure you CPR steam locomotives were properly maintained to the very end.
