C N R Steam Locomotives


 
 
 
 
I like most Canadians over 50 have a fascination with
railways and steam engines in particular. 
I decided to put together this page showing some of the 
CNR steam locomotives that serviced this country of ours.

 
 

 
 
CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS
The People's Railway

The CNR started it's life in January 1923. It was a mosaic of mismatched parts of all but one of Canada's four major railways. 
It was comprised of the Grand Trunk Railway (GTR),  Intercolonial Railway (ICR) and the
Canadian Northern (CNoR).
The locomotives shown on this page were in some cases inherited from the previous railways and in other's bought by the CNR. The CNR was in need of a lot of new equipment after the merger to enable it to compete with the one remaining private railway, the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR).
The rivalry between these two railways continues to this day.
The CNR had the disadvantage of being government controlled and had to support many unprofitable line because of political interference.
This cost a great deal of money which a certain portion was written off by the government each year but the CNR usually showed an annual loss because of it.
Those losses plus a staggering debt load that was inherited from the merger left the CNR in the position of having to ask the government for hand outs each year.

These steam locomotives were operated until the process to replace them with diesel electric engines began in 1950. This was brought on by a serious coal strike in the US that caught CNR with very low reserves of coal and cause the temporary shutdown of some services.
This gave the government the incentive to provide the necessary funding for the conversation.
The process started on the east and west coasts of the country, working towards central Canada.
The first passenger train to be converted was the Ocean Limited, which ran between Montreal and Halifax in 1954. The process was completed by the mid 1950's.

There was a fair amount of opposition from within the CNR to this change but it was necessary because of the lower operating costs of the diesel electric engines.
They didn't necessarily run any faster but could go much further distances between refueling and required service.
 




At CN it's "SAFTEY FIRST" make it a habit

The locomotive is seen here at Vancouver in 1939.

 
This picture was submitted by  Isabelle Gould, Moncton, NB
Shown is her grandfather,  Aime A LeBlanc B. 1879 - D.1959
He was an engineer/fireman for the CNR. He drove trains from Moncton to PEI, from Bathurst to Tracadie and also from Moncton to Campbelton.  He retired  around 1945 
This just from Doug Joslin, Barrie ON. "CN 1008 was a Ten Wheeler, F-1-b, built MLW 19l2 for CGR #4528, scrapped 8-1954"

 
 
These pictures came for a mainly Internet news groups and are public domain.
My thanks to the BC Archive for the use of their photographs.

I would like to invite any one that has a favorite CNR steam locomotive picture or 
a Web Page that they would like added to this page to E mail me. 

If anyone can supply additional information on the
locomotives shown on this page I would appreciate it.

John Cross of Pictou Co. Nova Scotia, Canada gave me a copy of the 150 pictures that he had purchased at a Donny Pidgeon auction and I wrote a second page for these pictures.
Some of these pictures are very rare and some show the steam engines that were used in the Maritime Provinces of Canada.

High Friends. I have a special request.
I received the following series of pictures from a visitor to this site. She made a request to see if I could find out any more information on any of these pictures.
"I am going through old family photos from British Columbia (Rossland, New Westminster, Steveston) from c1890s-1910s.  I have quite a few that I can't place (and I can't read the engine numbers!)." If you have any information on these pictures you can use this email link to contact me

James Michael Gowan is a short story writer from Owen Sound Ontario.
He has given me permission to to publish this story of his 
early railway experiances with his father "for single use only".
This also applies to any pictures he has submitted to this or other  web sites that I own.

 
"My goal is to add photos to an anthology of my life's experiences. I am a short story writer and the Son and Brother of CNR railroad engineers.

I was born in Owen Sound in 1947. Buy age 6 my family had to move to London Ontario for my father to get regular work on the CNR. Rail service was dying in the Northern part of South Western Ontario. I do recall very vividly those times when my Dad broke all the rules and took me (at age 4 or 5) with him on a night run from Owen Sound to London, Ont. That was the connecting terminus, via Stratford Ont. Dad would sneak me into the bunk house in London to sleep with him before the return trip to Owen Sound.

I remember his laughter, and that of the Fireman, when they told me I had to shovel coal from the tender into the boiler. I was so small, just lifting the shovel was a challenge; forget having coal on the shovel. I did what I was told and watched the gauges they told me I had to watch. There was so few chunks of coal on each shovel full, it took a while for the gauge to tell me I could stop.

I remember the whistle stop at Palmerston, Ont. in the pre dawn light where he gave me a few coins to run into the station and buy a sandwich and a pop. This was high drama for a young child, because I was told that my Dad could get into big trouble if I was seen in the cab of the train. I was a willing co-conspirator. I would sneak to the far side of the engine to re-enter the cab at these stops for snacks.

After the family moved to London, there were fewer times that my Dad could take me with him. One that sticks out in my mind was a passenger run from London (a shift change point of that era) to Windsor Ont. On the night in question, my father had awakened me just past midnight and asked me if I wanted to go with him on a run. I was about 10 years old, as I recall. I of course said "yes".

I was speechless when I saw the awesome steam engine that I would be riding in on the way to Windsor. It was a 6400 series. If my recollection is correct, it was 6403. Since this was a passenger run, the conductor was back in the coaches. I took his seat in the cab. The fireman and my Dad gave me a job; no shovel this time. I had to watch two gauges and turn a knob to keep the temperature values within set parameters. I was told that there was a conveyor that ran under the cab floor that fed coal from the tender to the boiler. By watching the gauges and turning the knob, I was activating that conveyor when it was necessary.

I handled my assigned tasks for a bout an hour, before I fell asleep. When we got to Windsor, the fireman said I would make a good Conductor. I was so disappointed that we had diesel engine for the return trip to London.

I am trying to remember the whistle sequence for level crossings. Was it two long, one short, then one long? I do remember that my Dad let me blow the whistle at many crossings.

One of my sad memories of my Dad as an engineer was the silences that followed an accident at work. He was very quiet for days after a trip he had been on that had caused death or injury to a person trying to race the train to a crossing and lost. Even though he had no control over the situation, he still felt the loss personally.

There were two situations that rankled him. One, he had released some steam at a stop and some lady had her white gloves stained. The second was a stop on a passenger run that was not as smooth as he wanted, and an onboard CNR dignitary had his soup spill. For both of those MAJOR transgressions he received demerit marks on his record.

After my father's death in 1975; at his funeral, I got an up close, in person view of how my father was viewed as a "railroad man". This view was provided by his co-workers. At the funeral home, I was approached by a man who had only worked with my father for about 3 years. He said to me "Your father was one hell of a railroad man. I didn't always agree with him, but I always respected him".

The next comment came from a man who had worked with my Dad for many years. One would have to understand the relationship between freight and passenger priorities on the rails to understand his comments. He said to me," Your Dad covered more ground in less time than any engineer I ever worked with. He did it within standard rules and boundaries. I still don't know how he managed to do what he did".

I reflect back on a trip our family made to California from Ontario in 1963. I was 15 years old, pre-licensing age; therefore the designated navigator. I had watched my father drive a car and a large locomotive for many years. On our "cross country" oddessy, I was able to predict our arrival time at days end at the chosen destination within 5 minutes, every day, every time. Maybe I was a chip off the old "railroad" block.

I still cherish the memory of that wonderful, talented "railroad man" that was my Dad. I would give anything to re-live the arguments we had about my buying too many muscle cars in the late 60's and early 70's.

My Father was a simple working man who had garnered the respect and love of people from Connecticut to California. I know, because they were ALL there at his funeral. Oh, to be able to walk a mile in the shoes of a Great Man.

I miss him still today, My Father, the Railroad Man."

Sincerely,

James Michael Gowan

6218 was the last coal fired locomotive to run out of Montreal.
The engineer was Angus Louis Duncan
Canadian Northern Rwy . was one of two transcontinental railways, 
the other being the Grand Trunk Pacific  which became the
Canadian National system in 1923. 

 
 
CNR 6183 and 6184 at Truro Nova Scotia, November 10, 1953 
These pictures were submitted by Jeff DeVouge, Truro Nova Scotia.
"I came across the photo while cleaning out an old desk at the Truro Daily News, where I work in the mailroom. Being a rail fan, it was not going in the trash as the rest of the photos were. I've had the photo mounted on my wall ever since."

The following pictures were submitted by John Riley
"My grandfather Walter Riley was first a fireman with the Grand Trunk beginning in 1912 in Truro Nova Scotia, then in the 1920s became an engineer in Montreal. He was engineer of the pilot train that preceded the Royal Train in 1939, and continued working in the capacity of engineer till the mid 1950s. 
I recently found photos of him standing in front of #6401, which I believe was the pilot train on the Royal Tour, another on Grand Trunk engine #518. 
When I was very young my grandfather had a freight route from Montreal to Island Pond, Vermont. On a couple of occasions he would stop the train at the St. Lambert Station just long enough for me to scramble aboard. I got to ride in the cab sitting on his lap, and hed let me toot the horn at upcoming intersections. My father would ride in the car and pick me up when we stopped 20 miles eastward down the line. Leaning out the cab, even on a slow moving freight was a real thrill for a child. They are great memories to this day. 
At the end of his career his final route was from St-Jean Quebec across the border to Rouses Point NY. He lived halfway along the route at the little village of St. Blaise. From his house hed drive his car over the border and leave it at the station. Hed pick up a Canadian bound freight and take it to St-Jean. There hed switch trains for an American bound one, and return it to Rouses Point. After picking up his car he went to a grocery store and regularly brought my mother a tub of margarine (which was illegal to purchase at that time in Quebec). My mother had a special spot in her heart for him doing that. So I guess you could say he began his railway career as a fireman, moved up to engineer, and ended it as a margarine smuggler, but to me Ill always remember him as a wonderful grandfather, an avid fisherman and great railroad man."

The following are a series of pictures of Canadain Northern Railway locomotives
The Canadian Northern Railway[1] (CNoR) is a historic Canadian transcontinental railway. At its demise in 1923, when it was merged into the Canadian National Railway (reporting mark CN), the CNoR owned a main line between Quebec City and Vancouver via Ottawa, Winnipeg, and Edmonton.

CN 5107, displayed beside the Ron Morel Memorial Museum at Kapuskasing 
Ontario around 1975. It arrived there in 1971.

The locomotive was built by Montreal Locomotive Works in May of 1919
(Ser# 61473) as a "Pacific" type, with a wheel arrangement of 4-6-2, meaning
4 leading wheels, 6 driving wheels and 2 trailing wheels. 

Behind the Pacific loco, are CN coach 5145, built in March 1919 by the Canadian 
Car & Foundry in Montreal; CN coach 5372, built by Pullman as a sleeper in 
November 1913 and converted by CN to a day coach in 1942 and wood caboose
75848, built in 1912 and rebuilt by CN in July 1941 in their Montreal's Pointe
St.Charles shops from an original Grand Trunk Railway (GTR) boxcar. 

The 5107 and cars were brought to Kapuskasing by the Late Roland (Ron)
Morel (1922-1976), an avid railroad enthusiast to endow Kapuskasing with a
permnent museum/tourist attraction. Behind the locomotive are CN 5145 featuring
a 32 x 8 foot HO layout as well as other railway artifacts, while Car 5372 shows local Kapuskasing history, some of it of a nearby POW camp during WWII , with photos
and other mementos. Finally, Caboose 75848 is a gift shop. Excellent panoramic 360 degree virtual tour for each car is at: http://mci390.wix.com/ron-morel-museum#!virtual-tour/co4e

H&SW (Halifax & Southwestern Railway) #7075
The H&SW was created in spring 1901 when William Mackenzie and Donald Mann approached the provincial government with plans to finish the abortive plans for a railway from Halifax to Yarmouth along the province's South Shore. For many years, the line had significant curvature throughout its length, a result of the rugged local topography, which earned it the moniker, "Hellish Slow & Wobbly".

CNR 5093 Pacific Class at Regina SK  Union Station 
This picture was submitted by Art Grieve, Winnipeg, Manitoba
 CNR 5093, displayed at the east gate of the Exhibition Grounds in Regina, Sask., during the mid-70s.

The Pacific-type locomotive was built in 1918 by the Montreal Locomotive Works as oil- burning 4-6-2. (Ser#58330) class J-4-c, for the Canadian Government Railways as  CGR 471. It became CNR 5093 when the Canadian Government formed  "Canadian National Railways" (1918-1923), from a pool of its own locomotives and many others, acquired from near-bankrupt railways all over the country. 

While CPR used Regina as a transcontinental stop, the city was also served by the CNR for local passenger service, which caused the building to be named "Union Station". Every major railway town wanted a steam engine as they were being rapidly scrapped. CNR 5093 was found suitable and purchased in 1964 by the Regina Plains Museum.  The tender however came from CNR locomotive 5139, another 4-6-2. To highlight the locomotive, it was prominently displayed at the east gate of the Exhibition Grounds, where she stayed until July 1995.

In 1991, after VIA Rail ceased serving Regina (January 1990 - mfj),  Union Station  was declared a Provincial Heritage Site, renovated and selected  to house Casino Regina. To emphasize the railway aspect of the area, the Saskatchewan Government which run the Casino, decided to restore the 5093 and move her to the right of the front doors where she is displayed today. Notice the change of  logo on the tender in this picture, from a round "Canadian National Railways" superimposed on a maple leaf http://www.trainweb.org/oldtimetrains/photos/cnr_steam2/logo_maple_leaf.jpg , to the more simple "Canadian National" tilted wafer shown in the other photo. Another positive point for this view  is that the "engineer's side" is shown, whereas the other photo on the page is the "fireman's side". The cairn in front did not make it to the new display.

Following static display in Jasper AB and  subsequent restoration in 1972-73 at the CN Pointe St-Charles Shops, 6060 made an inaugural trip from Montreal to Victoriaville in September 1973 and then this Canadian Railroad Historical Association fantrip from Montreal to the Garneau Marshalling Yard (Triage Garneau), situated about a half hour east of Shawinigan QC on the CN Joliette Subdivision. http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=88349 . Several railfans wait near the station to the left, while the locomotive, after having being turned around, is backing up to the rest of the train.

After a few more railfan trips in Québec, Vermont and Maine, 6060 steamed to Ontario where she operated in excursion service for rail association fantrips and in scheduled service to Niagara Falls with side trips to Yager during summer weekends, before being donated in late 1980, to the Province of Alberta to commemorate their 75th Anniversary.

Temiscouata Railway 12
These pictures were submitted by Arlana Nickel, Kamloops, BC
This picture was taken by her father Richard E. Miller and the above shows the hand written note on the back of the above picture. 
Engine 12 ran on the Temiscouata Railway which ran from Riviere Du Loupe PQ and Edmunston NB.  and then proceeding along the Saint John River to Connors. The complete line was opened on October 1, 1891 The Temiscouata was purchased by the Canadian National Railway in December 1949 via an act of Parliament and operation was turned over to the CNR
on February 10, 1950.
CNR 6060
These pictures were submitted by Don Fraser, Ancaster, Ontario
They are digital copies of Kodak 35mm transparencies taken at the old CNR station in Hamilton, Ont., early to mid 70s.   His wife and two young daughters boarded the train on a day excursion run to Niagara Falls and back. 
CNR 6060
This scan,  from an early colour print,  has always been a puzzle to me. 
Taken on Saturday April 29, 1978, from Bloor St E., it shows CN 6060 in Toronto's Don Valley, displaying a GO Transit sign. At the time, 6060 was operating regular Toronto excursions to Niagara Falls,  after its rebuild at the Pointe St Charles shops in Montreal, following  retirement from regular service. Because the Government of Ontario would not fund some eventual repairs,  CN donated the locomotive to the Province of Alberta in 1980..
I did a bit of research and it would appear that the 6060 is celebrating upcoming GO commuter service to Barrie. GO service started 7 September 1982, with service on CN Newmarket Sub, 
but only as far as Bradford, a few miles south of there.
The roadway under the train is the Don Valley Parkway. The bridge in the background is 
probably CP track.

Jim had this to say about the pictures. "Given the terrain in the background of each photograph I believe that all the pictures were taken in, or near Transcona Manitoba. That is in a very flat area that extends east almost to the Manitoba/Ontario border. 
As for the CN shops in Transcona"

This picture was submitted by Art Smith
and was taken by his brother David Ray Smith
of Trenton Ontario Canada.
David had the following to say about it.
"This photo was the last (nearly) run of 6218 through Belleville. The Business cars were parked in front of the Station and a ceremony was held giving out the last orders for a steam Locomotive on the CNR. (6060 was not on the books or plans at this time). 6218 then backed eastward through the Belleville yard and then made the ceremonial this last runpass westward through the station on its way to Toronto. However after 6060 came on line 6218 made one more last run double heading to the museum in Fort Erie for display"
CNR 6218
Prarie Dog
CNR 6147
Although this engine is not from the CNR Art thought it would be of interest to my visitors.In his words,
"I included the picture of this ancient  (1880's)locomotive as I thought you might be interested in it. It was a City of Winnipeg Hydro engine until some time in the 1950s. It was used on a line  they operated between Lac du Bonnet and Pointe du Bois, Manitoba. When they abandoned the line a vintage railway outfit got their hands on it, plus  a bunch of ancient coaches, plus about 20 miles of abandoned CN. branch line. It operates in the summer as a tourist line. This summer they rebuilt the boiler on it, so it's as good as new now. "

Eldon had the following to say about this picture.
"Here is a picture of the steam engine that rode the rails between Moncton and Cape Tormentine (PEI Train). I rode in this engine when I was about 12 and got to blow the whistle for a few crossings between Cape Tormentine and Sackville. I had to get out in Sackville because there wasn't any stops from there to Moncton. 
My dad was baggage man on that train."
