The show has three CPR engineers telling of their experiences on the power shown in this program, including 4-6-2’s, 4-6-4 Royal Hudson, 4-6-0’s, 2-8-0’s, 5400 series semi-streamlined 2-8-2’s and even a 4-4-0 number 136. We see famous Royal Hudson 2839 in freight service and the very last fantrip with Royal Hudson 2857. There is a doubleheader fantrip with 136 and 4-6-0 815, and later a tripleheader with the same two engines, plus 4-6-0 1057. The regular service footage includes some branchline runs as well as other lines that may not be so well known during the final days of the steam era in Ontario for CPR. This is another fine show of black and white footage shot by Newt Rossiter.
