2816 over the years

Note smoke deflectors. April 27,1946 Harry Hart/Robin Hart Collection

John Street roundhouse, Toronto. 4/1947 Stan Styles/L.B.Chapman Collection

No. 354 eng. 2822 tender 2816! That is right. 2816 today has a tender off another 2800!
Not all that unusual since tenders were often interchangeble.
Tenders had their own builders plate as well but were often missing.

Number 354 at Three Rivers (Trois Rivieres), Quebec.
9/11/1952 Roger Boisvert/Bruce Chapman Collection

No. 20 engine 2816 eastbound at Galt no longer equipped with smoke deflectors. July 7, 1954. William I. Miller

Christmas Eve Thursday, December 24, 1953 No. 629 (The Bullet) was changed from a Dayliner to conventional equipment totalling twelve cars including two RDC's. 2816 hauled that train carrying 969 passengers. Departing Toronto at 3.55 p.m. the heavy weight of the train (it would have been assisted by another passenger engine 60 miles to Orrs Lake) and the high volume of passengers all combined to make it one hour and fifty minutes late arriving at Detroit. The connection through to Chicago was still made due to a three hour and twenty minute layover departing 11.40 p.m. Public time table 1954.
