Canadian Pacific Railway
Last of steam on Montreal suburban service 1960.
I have been looking for some time for old photos on the Web of the CPR commuter yard at Dorion Quebec in the steam era and have only managed to find one picture so far. This was of course where CPR steam locos were layed over for the next days commuter runs to Montreal. I had spent many an hour trainwatching at the old CNR and CPR stations in Pointe Claire and decided one day that I would journey out to Dorion to photograph the steam locomotives before they were all gone.
As far as I remember these pics were taken probably on
weekends in Jan/Feb of 1960. I have attached seven of the photos I took.
Please excuse the B&W and the quality as I only had a Brownie Hawkeye
camera to use I did graduate to a 35mm later in 1960.
2461 and 2408 side-by-side. Note steam lines on ground. Stack blower between engines used for startup.
