Conway Scenic @ North Conway, NH
The locomotive was built by the Grand Trunk Railway at Pointe-Saint-Charles, Montreal, Quebec, in June 1921. The Grand Trunk classified the switcher as F9 Class and numbered it as No. 1795. When the Canadian National Railway absorbed the Grand Trunk in 1923, they reclassified it as an O-18-a and renumbered it as No. 7470. My Grandfather, Angus Macdonald, was Chief Boiler Maker at Point St. Charles at this time and its possible might have worked on this locomotive. Here the O-18-a switcher brings in a string of cars.
