Engine 136, the second oldest steam locomotive in Canada
My husband and I visited Tottenham yesterday to check out historical steam locomotive #136. Since August 2011 during summer and early fall, #136 has hauled an excursion train along four miles of track between Tottenham and Beeton. But in 1883, #136 worked for Canadian Pacific Railway when CPR became a Canadian transcontinental reality.

What fun to hear the old engine - running on coal - chugging along in the distance! The engine's horn gradually grew louder and a flagman appeared to stop cars and trucks from crossing the tracks.

South Simcoe Railway has run excursions since 1993. South Simcoe Railway is run by volunteers, all of whom have operational qualifications and must regularly re-qualify.
South Simcoe Railway is the oldest operating heritage railway in Ontario.

We didn't ride the train yesterday but plan to do so soon!
