Fredericton York Street Train Station Ornament
You can almost hear the chuff, chuff sound of its boiler as Locomotive 2929 prepares to leave the station. With smoke and steam billowing from its stack, the train slowly begins to move.
It was Thursday, February 16th, 1956 — a winter day like any other — when the last steam locomotive to operate in passenger service on the CPR’s Fredericton branch line chugged out of Fredericton’s York Street Station. On the platform that day, people were coming and going — saying hello, saying goodbye. As the train rumbled past, a mother held her baby tightly.
