CPR STEAM-THE FINAL CHAPTER|
Cameraman Newt Rossiter captured black and white footage on 16mm film, which has been transferred to video for this show. It was originally called "The Final Chapter of Canadian Pacific Steam in Ontario". Since we already had a title on South Africa called "The Final Chapter" we modified this title slightly. The show has three CPR engineers relate their experiences on most of the power that is show during the presentation, and includes 4-6-2's, 4-6-4 Royal Hudson, 4-6-0's, 2-8-0's, 5400 series semi-streamlined 2-8-2's and even a fantrip with 4-4-0 number 136. We see famous Royal Hudson 2839 in freight service and the very last fantrip with Royal Hudson 2857 which was later scrapped. There is a doubleheader fantrip with 136 and 4-6-0 815, and later a tripleheader with the same two engines, plus 4-6-0 1057. The regular service footage includes some branchline runs as well as other lines that may not be so well known during the final days of the steam era in
