Early Vintage Train in St. John's

St. John's
early 1900's

Early vintage steam engine train at St. John's railway station.

Pictured is one of the 190-class "Pacific" engines, the first of which was
built for the Reid Newfoundland Company in 1920 by the Baldwin
Locomotive Works of Philadelphia.  These engines (ten in all,
numbered 190-199 in two slightly different sub-classes) all
survived into the CN era and were subsequently renumbered
590-599, just before they were replaced by the
800-class lightweight diesels in the 1950's.
