Tuesday Train #302

For March, as a 5 Tuesday month, a special theme, the Preserved Steam Locomotives of Northern Ontario. Looking back to our September 2021 Week long road trip through a part of the province we have never explored.

Fifth and last on this months trip across Highway 17 from Kapuskasing to North Bay, is Temiskaming & Northern Ontario 503, a 2-8-0 built by the Canadian Locomotive Company in 1902. While it looks ok, it has been banished to the back of an unkempt municipal parking lot, next to an enclosure full of railroad junk..including the hulks of two TEE Trans European Express cars used by the Ontario Northland for the Northlander Train for many years. It has definitely seen better days.
