enrt S8Gn sO much as 2 donkey assiened to pull thG trnin.
My thoughts e.rG intsrruptbo, thouch, [8 j;116 train lurches for,.·C.rd
~ithout any apparent means of locomotion. To m2ke m2tters ~orse,
smoke is pouring from thG roof of the front c~r and volumptuous
r
(sicl bangs can be heard. I immGdiately sta~t for the door, ~ro­
claiming that the cars are rolling ~~ay and that a revolution is
bG

fello~ ppssengers. I nm informed that our m£flns of locomotion is
an oil-electric !:doodlobugf simi12r to the one :hic11 m[0.e [. r6cord

go up to the front cnr.
I settle back in my seat, my mind filled sith visions of

All I see is a fr8i~ht train on top of a big pile of e~rth. Every

the engine in order to get a better look. I m(di~t61y, I ill the

rl.;.· .. :3 Canadian Northerns new consolidated roster of locomotives has

Sup8J:intendent of Rolling Stock, has been working on a revised system
of clas:Jification and numbering –his plan bas met i th approval and
it ~ill be made effective next month.
Up to nOi·l, each section of tbe system has had its own equipmont
series, but with the greater interchange of motive po,..rer, as contem­
platod, sl)me stancls.rdiz,atiol1 will have to be adopted.
As I know you are interested in our motive poTer and rollJng stock
I shall send you attached a copy of the classification SLIIJ1.mary, 1I!hich
may prove of vaL.~8 to you and assist in identifying our loeorr,oti-·p·.
