  1. Excellent photo showing the space between boiler and drivers. :-)

  2. Perfect example of why steam railroading in the 50′s entrances us.

  3. Jacob, very nice and interesting picture, very rare to see a CN 2-8-0 on a Toronto bound passenger train, most being powered in the ‘50’s by Northerns, Mountains and the odd Pacific. Now and again a 2-8-0 showed up on the daily train Hamilton-Georgetown- Allandale-Meaford substituting for D1-C1-C2. Thanks for posting, John

  4. Thanks guys. Date would appear to be May 17, 1958.
