CN 4-8-2 #6077 - Canadian National  Contributor's Pick!       
Built by the Montreal Locomotive Works in 1944, this loco and its sisters received all the benefits of research and testing making them highly evolved and efficient locomotives. The engine was colorfully trimmed and graceful in appearance, with a blunted cap covering the smokebox door. This feature inspired the nickname "Bullet-Nosed Betty". Specs - class U-1-f, 73" drivers, impressive 260 psi boiler pressure, 24x30" cylinders, engine weight of 365,700 lb, tractive effort of 52,313 lb. Unknown photographer

Rick Morgan General Pretty much the height of CN steam power in my book; other than the U-1-f doesn't look quite right without a Vanderbilt tender. 4/14/2016 8:14:28 AM
Raymond Kennedy General Received tender off 6138 when 6077 converted to oil-firing. Preserved at Capreol. 4/14/2016 5:09:35 PM
Raymond Kennedy General CORRECTION: This tender is off T-4-b 2-10-2 4328 9/1958 in Transcona. AFTER displayed it got tender off Northern 6138. 5/9/2016 7:26:19 PM
