CPR steam. Special this month is an entire gallery (43 photos) devoted to just two days of steam activity in Montreal in June of 1959. Edward J. Ozog travelled from the States to catch the last days of steam. You will see at least one familiar engine in regular passenger service, the now famous 2816. As an example of how much work goes into this web site, it took me approxiamately 10 hours to put all this together. I hope you enjoy it.
a forlorn scene of dead engines after the end of steam. Mountain

CPR Trip Ticket

1949. New contributor Ken Bossi, Ray's son.
CPR London Division added details of run through operation over CSX and NS between Detroit and Chicago. Less than satisfactory describes the running rights since CSX crews had to be used. It was long a source of delay for CPR traffic especially when shortage of crews held trains in Chicago, as many as 7 trains all weekend! A better arrangement was when NS agreed to CPR having running rights over a shorter route via Elkhart where a crew base was established using laid off D&H crews and then new hires. Expressway trains detailed further.

5754 in Toronto see John
CPR diesel S-3 m.u. added DAR 6560_6561 the only two units built with m.u. and weighted heavier. This gave them tractive effort similar to that of a 1000 hp S-2. I was working at Lambton roundhouse when they arrived. They were dispatched as single units for yard and local jobs. One fine day one of them was assigned to one of the Emery Way Freights, this one being a heavy job requiring a Seventy Hundred S-2. The engineer immediately informed me the Sixty Five Hundred would not be acceptable for the job. I had to assure him this 6500 would do the job as it was not like any the regular ones. Reluctantly, he took my word and went to work. The next day when he booked out he cheerfully agreed with my assessment saying he would take one any day!
ONR Diesel added RS-10 1401 and GP38-2 1803.
TH&B steam added 40 back when it was just another 0-6-0 yard switcher before it was sold to STELCO where it was the last steam engine in a large fleet. Kept as a "toy" it was finally disposed of in 1969 going to the National Museum of Science & Technology in Ottawa where it operated for some time hauling very short rides. Retired once again when firebox repairs turned out to be too expensive it was later disposed of going to Lindsay where the TH&B never reached. It has received somewhat indifferent care. Stored indoors out of public view it more recently has been displayed outdoors. Why did it go to Lindsay? A local politician asked the CNR if they had an old 0-6-0 they could donate to commorate her brother (a CNR empoyee) who was killed by one in Lindsay years ago. Sure lady!

Andy Mc.Culloch Photograph Collection
Intercolonial 130 built 1881by Flemming Foundry in St.John, New Brunswick.
A few months ago Andy Mc.Culloch decided to dispose of his massive collection of over 12,000 photographs bought over many years. He was concerned these photos be acquired by someone interested in their continued preservation. He sold them to Walter Pfefferle a southwestern Ontario rail photographer better known for his daily photos and postings of trains near his home on his and other web sites.

Photographs Added two great old 1950's photos of CPR company vehicles. The one above is a (likely yellow) Chevrolet panel truck belonging to the Car Department. There were not a lot of vehicles used in the 1950's unlike later years when Engineering went to hy-rail trucks for much of their work. The other includes a yellow CPR bus providing employee service from streetcars to St.Luc Yard from new contributor Ken Boulton who acquired it years ago from an unknown photographer.
CPR old diesel added great old colour photo of 7107-7100 running in transfer service (Extra 7107 West) in Vancouver terminal. Twenty S-4's (7099-7118) were delivered by MLW in 1949.

CPR London Division passenger
page added a great old colour scene of steam and diesel plus CPT
bus at Galt.
CPR Trenton Division passenger history page added interesting old photo of 2200 laying over with equipment in Peterboro, plus another shot of it underway somewhere to the west. Once again, these old photographs taken before I was born, drew considerable interest trying to locate where they were taken. They were mislabeled as to their location and undated. A third photo, this one dated, of 2200 with its short train (not shown) recently loaned by Bruce Chapman led to solving the mystery. Doug Smith had already determined it was The Quaker Oats Company plant in the background, which of course made the location Peterborough, not Toronto. But, a passenger train should not be near Quaker Oats as their buildings were located on freight-only trackage away from the passenger station on the main line. Looking at a number of aerial photos of Peterboro in Steam Memories of Lindsay, I could see the small CPR two-stall enginehouse near Quaker Oats, which had been hidden behind the train. Checking the 1939 public time table revealed there was a local passenger train that laid overnight in Peterborough. Mystery solved!
CPR Trenton Division power
gallery added 2807 in Belleville and 5113 switching in Oshawa
when I was an infant!

CPR created a new gallery of steam and diesel at Drake
February 1, 2011
This old colour slide recently drew a lot of interest from an informal group of retired railroaders who exchange photos and stories by e-mail. Unfortunately, like so many old photos and slides this one had no date or caption. It did have a name on it however, a long distance phone call to the now 86 year old Bob Lorenz in Ohio revealed he had long ago disposed of his photo collection and was unable to help. The more there is in the background of these old photos the better the chance it can be identified. In this case the particular engine was one of only 39 of that class and it was known to have been at Angus main shops in 1957 following which it was transferred to London where it worked the west end (Chatham Subdivision) a very flat line. So, using a combination of old and new technology including internet maps and e-mail along with some knowledge of lines, signal systems etc. Jim Brown, well-known rail photographer was able to offer a plausable location. He decided upon Ringold, a small spot on the map where a passing track was located one place west of Chatham, Ontario. The train is believed to be Fourth class eastbound freight 80 or 82 based upon employee time tables in effect in the mid-1950's.
Interestingly, 2200 was one of only three (also,
2202 and 2219) G1 class 4-6-2's to be modified with a mechanical
stoker, spares left over from the 1950 cancellation of the G5
4-6-2's. Only 100 had been delivered by CLC and MLW, a further
500 were planned to replace all of these G1's along with a much
bigger number of G2 Pacific's plus hundreds of 4-6-0's including
the numerous D10's.
