Baldwin 2-6-0 Mogul (steam locomotive)

Discussion in 'Transportation' started by fishbio, Sep 11, 2008.

  1. Engine # 7717 is a 36" gauge locomotive built in 1885 for the Northwest Coal and Navigation Co. It carried coal on a narrow gauge rail connected to the Canadian Pacific Railway main line. After conversion of the line to standard Gauge, the C.P.R. purchased #7717 in 1907 for construction of the spiral tunnels above Field, British Columbia. After completion of the tunnels 100 years ago in 1908, the poor little engine was abandoned below the upper tunnel. I photographed its remains last week.

    Interesting stuff Larry, I particually like the final shot
    Allthough I guess this is technically still a locomotive, I'd not have been confused to see this in the plants and greenery forum
     
  3. Thanks, Robert

    I had to choose a forum and the main subject is neither the greenery or the landscape, so......

    Cheers,

    Larry

  10. Hi Ted

    It's in a National Park (Yoho) and you have to walk a couple of km each way to get to it. It's not in you're average tagger's 'hood.

    Cheers,

    Larry
