Blog Guelph: Canadian National Locomotive 6167


Canadian National, originally uploaded by TheGiantVermin.Click the photo to see more images by this photographer.

The Guelph Mercury ran an excellent feature on Locomotive 6167 in the Here Section of Saturday's paper.

According to the story, there are only six engines of this kind left in Canada. Built in Montreal, 6167 was completed on March 29, 1940.

Guelph became the retirement home for 6167 nearly forty years ago. It currently sits on the east side of the downtown bus station.
