Photo of CNR 6060 Excursion returning to Toronto
CNR 6060 Excursion returning to Toronto

For a number of years in the mid-'70s to early '80s, CN operated Toronto-Niagara Falls fan trips pulled by oil burner 4-8-2 #6060. This capture shows 6060 returning to Toronto at sunset on a sultry evening in September 1976. Six years earlier, 6060 had been snoozing on display at CN's Jasper depot. In 1980, CN presented 6060 to the people of Alberta as a gift where it operated for Alberta Prairie Steam Tours in Stettler, AB until 2011. The Rocky Mountain Rail Society is now working to restore 6060 to operation once again.
