Royal Hudsons

2839 was once part of the Government of Ontario collection for the still-born Transportation Museum in Toronto.
Its disposal caused dismay and resentment when it went to the USA where it had a chequered career with various owners.
The Royal Hudson operated for a time including mainline excursions before being stored and eventually acquired by a
private automobile museum in Sylmar, California where it remains. Original preservation assisted by R.L.Kennedy.

This is her first trip on the Southern Railway which had leased it for their own main line steam program.

Calgary station July 31, 1951 Arthur B. Johnson/Bud Laws Collection

5931 repainted as "5934".

This was done since Calgary wanted the last Selkirk but it was already committed to CRHA.

5931 was identical subclass and was selected instead and renumbered.
It was later renumbered properly as per above photos.
