    Hello Everyone---When a railroad such as the Canadian National has an all time roster of over 4,000 steam locomotives,it shouldn't be a surprise that many of them were imported---here's a few that came from south of the border

    USRA Mikes,#3734 and #3736

    Both of these locomotives were detailed and painted by Doctor Wayne---one is a brass import from Key Models while the other is a highly modified Athearn Genesis---even I have trouble making the distinction between the two

    Here's another USRA---this time a Santa Fe type 2-10-2 which started on the Boston and Albany and were bought by the CNR in 1928

    CNR U-3-A #6309,an Alco built Northern started life on the Grand Trunk Western but ended it's career working out of Sarnia Ontario on fast freight service.These locomotives were a common sight in southern Ontario

    Again,thanks to Doctor Wayne for creating these beauties
