Tuesday Train #197

We’re going with some retro Canadian Steam for the next couple of Tuesday Trains. These pictures are from either the summer of 1992 or 1993. I was never in New Brunswick when they were running, but on one of our visits to Fundy National Park and the Hopewell Rocks, I managed to convince my parents to stop and let me take a couple of pictures at the Salem and Hillsborough Railroad.

SH01Canadian Pacific 4-4-0 29 and Canadian National 4-6-0 1009 rest outside the shops.

Canadian Pacific 29 would nearly be destroyed in late 1994 after I’d moved back to Ontario in an arson attack on the railway. Fortunately, Canadian Pacific re-acquired the locomotive, and fully restored it, and she now sits outside the corporate headquarters in Calgary. 1009 wasn’t damaged in the fire and ran until 1998 before becoming a static exhibit. The Salem and Hillsborough no longer operates as a tourist line, but has transitioned to be the New Brunswick Railway Museum.
