Switcher

Type of locomotive used at Turcot to pull  new cars from Canada Car & Foundry into the main yard.

“CLC (Canadian Locomotive Company) was still turning out 0-6-0 switchers at a time when 0-8-0’s were more common for the heavier work required in railway yards. These two were for industrial switching at the Turcot Works (Montreal) of Canadian Car & Foundry. Two identical engines had been built in 1929 and 1930. CLC/Don Mc.Queen Collection.”
