Steam Engine 1095 Canada Pacific, Kingston On.
In the heart of the downtown Kingston, On. waterfront park is Engine 1095. It is a daily tourist attraction, and is clearly well cared for by the city.
Built in 1913, the various guard rails, hand hold, equipment hooks, and other small hardware pieces were clearly still hand forged in the Canadian Locomotive Company shop.
One of over 500 of this model built by the Canadian Locomotive Company, it is nice to see the old girl so well preserved. Only a tiny percentage of Steam locomotives have survived, and the largest and most common seem to have survived the least.
