6301 (U3e CPR Nov. 1913) final steam engine assigned to Guelph Yard sits in the Bone Yard
at Lambton shop, waiting to be moved dead to Angus for scrapping. Replaced February 1957
briefly by GMD SW8 diesel, 6702 from Windsor, until a new MLW S3, 6590 was received.
Equipped with a Watchman heater (eliminating need for an enginehouse), it was the regular
Guelph yard engine for many years. Eventually, in October 1982 the yard assignment was
abolished and replaced by a Road Switcher assignment established at Guelph Junction.
