Certificate for shop boiler from 4-6-0 locomotive 27. Old Time Trains Archives
A fourth class stationary engineer's license would be required to operate such a boiler under Ontario law. My grandfather held one from when he worked at Viceroy Rubber and a large school (where the closed hot water heating system operated on FOUR pounds pressure!) when laid off during the Great Depression by the CPR with a long service pass (20 years) in his wallet. He maintained his qualification renewing it almost until he retired. Just in case!
