This excellent photo come to me from regular reader Doug S. who got permission from the photographer Charlie Whipp to post it here. Thanks to both Doug and Charlie for this amazing shot…
The photo dates to May, 1974 and is a shot of Canadian National’s steam engine 6060 at the waterfront roundhouse.
Here’s a map for reference showing the location of the roundhouse on the waterfront. As you can see the roundhouse was just east of Louis Ave.
Doug also sent along info that 6060 is still around. The 4-8-4 is in Stettler, AB (between Calgary & Edmonton) and is operated as a tourist train by the Rocky Mountain Railroad Society.
