Mystery train wreck on the CPR
Reproduced below is an interesting series of photographs taken by Mr. George T. Logan of a train wreck on the Canadian Pacific Railway. George Logan was an engineer in the saw mill at Fossmill, Ontario and was an avid amateur photographer. They where sent to Past Forward by his wife Patricia Logan. It was originally hoped that these photos were of the train wreck at Fossmill in 1934 but alas they are not. We thought they where a fascinating series of photos so we are posting them here for your enjoyment. Can anyone identify the location and year of this wreck? Does anyone know more about the history of the locomotive (#2713).
The numbers and comments are taken from the back of the photos and are from George Logan. Number seven is missing. The photos where originally sent to George’s cousin in England. When she passed away her daughter found the photos and the address of Fossmill and Sturgeon Falls. She sent photos to both address and the one sent to Fossmill (which no longer exists) has disappeared.
