Here are some locomotives we saw at the museum yesterday. The first two are of a steam locomotive built in 1906 for Canadian Northern Railway and was used for a route from Winnipeg to Montreal. It is the oldest known locomotive built by the Canadian Locomotive Company. The next is a diesel electric built by Montreal Locomotive Works in 1956. It has a V12 4 stroke 1600hp diesel motor. The last is a 1970s diesel electric. Hope you enjoy.

    I really like the diesel in photo 3. Looks a bit like a Baldwin. The dust was just settling for the diesel era and there many different designs.

    Fortapache they are a subsidiary of the American Locomotive Co. Not sure if this means anything. Thank you very much for stopping by.

    Love your photos. For a time was very close with a man who worked on a rail line, we'd be talking on the phone when he was at work and if his window was open I could hear the trains go by so close, nothing like the sound of a train on tracks.

    Great photos Roy!! My father put in 20 years for CNR and a year or so for BCR before he got into the trains in mining.

    Yes Caperkid that is ALCO. They were Baldwin's main competitor in the steam era. Sadly both of then didn't make it in the Diesel era but their diesel locomotives are some my favorites.
