My friend and fellow hobbyist David Woodhead was playing a concert in London, Ontario last week and he returned home with a treat for me: Several photos of CNR Mogul 86, which is stuffed and mounted in a park near Dundas and Ontario Streets in the city. This is the locomotive that Simon Parent used as the basis for his excellent S scale model, and 86 is one of the three Moguls that I run on my layout. So it’s really neat to see that it survives in a fairly decent, albeit cosmetic, restoration.
For more on the locomotive and its presence in London, visit the London Public Library.
Thanks for the photos, David – and for permission to share them here!
