Locomotive 6167 Train Relocation

CN locomotive 6167 was built in 1940 and used to move goods, products and people from Ontario to East coast ports during World War II, eventually logging 2 million kilometres of service. Being one of the most photographed locomotives in North America, the locomotive was retired at the Guelph, Ontario Bus Terminal in 1959. Western was hired to relocate the 403,000 lbs locomotive and 280,000 lbs tender to facilitate a new downtown transit terminal. Photos by: H.B. Photo
