Last Run!

Prince Rupert Engine Facility, March 30, 1959. With the massive Ocean Dock, built by the US Army as part of the Seattle Sub-Port of Embarkation in the background, Engineer Pete Briggs brings the CNR 4205 in for the last time.

Having just disconnected from Extra West 922, flying white flags and displaying white classification lamps, Mr. Briggs brings to a close 37 years of service to the Canadian National Railways.

A tribute to a man who survived the transition from steam to diesel.
