It was the twilight of steam, and thank goodness Newton Rossiter was there to film it for us! We’ll see quite a variety of both CP and CN steam. First up is Canadian National power from smaller engines to the larger 2-8-2’s, 4-8-2’s, and 4-8-4’s. We also see the 4-6-4 Hudsons which had a distinctive tender. There were only a few of these racehorse engines built. Also shown is the shrouded (streamlined) 6060 series 4-8-2’s and the 6400 series 4-8-4’s. It’s quite a nice variety with good action scenes of most all the engine classes still in operation. Next are CPR engines, again working from smaller classes through larger 4-6-0’s, 2-8-0’s, 2-8-2’s, 4-6-2’s, and 4-6-4 Hudsons. There are a variety of the 4-6-2 pacifics, including the G3 types and G5’s, and several of the early Hudsons, and of course the Royal Hudsons. Here again we get to see a great variety of steam including some doubleheaders, and are entertained by some of the stories by some of the men who were there. The original film was silent, so music and narration has been added.
