While very rare in Sutherland, these coil cars are a fixture of the Regina scene. I won't be suprised if there are 100 in the city at any given time, always in long-cuts of at least a dozen! The steel they carry is the by-product of all those cars being scrapped @ IPSCO.
Build in 1946, went into service in 1947, most of the fleet retired in 1973. Looking at how well it is preserved, I'm guessing it spend the last 30 years in a sliding somewhere. Now it's at the scrapyard, waiting to be scrapped. I've seen a lot of relics there, but this has to be the best!
Recently repainted in a historically correct scheme, this 3 foot gauge former American Steel and Wire (Worcester, Mass) Vulcan 0-4-0T is on display at the Connecticut Antique Machinery Association in Kent, Ct.
