Steam'n

The South Simcoe Railway Heritage Corporation is a not-for-profit historical organization that is dedicated to steam era railway preservation. The corporation's collection of historic equipment includes a fleet of steam-era passenger coaches, freight equipment, and locomotives.

Steam train excursions are offered through the scenic rolling countryside between Tottenham and Beeton, Ontario for the months of May through October. The return trip takes just under one hour and is highlighted by the conductor's friendly and informative commentary.

The pride of the collection is historic Canadian Pacific Railway steam locomotive #136. Built in 1883, when Sir John A. Macdonald was Canada's first Prime Minister, #136 helped build Canada's transcontinental railway that joined the country together in 1885, and is unique in that it served the CPR from before it's completion right up until the end of the steam operations in 1960.

Old #136 has now entered a third century of indenture, and I am pleased to have captured some of that durability and faithful service in the image “Steam’n”.

Steam'n is drawn in Graphite on 14" x 17" Strathmore Bristol Vellum.
