Note the steam supply pipe along the running board towards the front of the engine. This was used in work train service to power a Lidgerwood machine. This engine was a tourist. It finished up on the Algoma Division after having been on the New Brunswick District and in the mountains of BC. Seems it had a problem with breaking staybolts and even after coming out of Angus this problem remained unsolved. Whenever instructions were issued to transfer power to another point the Locomotive Foreman (or, Master Mechanic perhaps) would make the actual selection of an engine within the desired class. Get rid of that #%&* engine! It has been privately preserved in the U.S.
