A1e 30 blurring the camera paasing Ottawa West station. 1/10/1941 Floyd Yates
This slightly blurred photo attests to the difficulty of photographing moving subjects with yesteryear's cameras.

This engine would be the fourth last 4-4-0. It became a spare for the old K&P and was last used in filming of the 1949
movie Canadian Pacific staring Randolph Scott. It was stored in West Toronto roundhouse and scrapped 5/1950.

Movie version of 30 carrying two numbers including 80 easily repainted 8 to 3 or reverse!
"Hat box" fake also, link and pin coupler on pilot, plus old style oil headlight and diamond stack.
Note fake wood pile which appears to be scrap rather than cord wood normally used.
Actual coal bunker lies beneath it since wood grates would be needed along with experience firing it!
