 Steam Engine Story

Picture of Steam Train

Karl's picture shows the refurbished CP Rail System steam engine # 136 on its first test run crossing the Tottenham Road north of the Town of Tottenham (Home of Ontario's foremost Blue Grass Music Festival) on Saturday, July 2, 2011.

This is the first time after four years that the 130 year-old engine has completed a successful run. It is again pulling coach cars to the delight of children who love its distinct whistle sound and the puffs of steam coming from the engine. In December there are Santa Claus runs on the weekends. Tickets can be purchased on http://www.southsimcoerailway.ca/.

During the early 1950's, Canada accounted for about 5,000 steam engines on its rail system. Today there are only five operational locomotives left in the country and the picture shows the only one of them presently running in Ontario.
