Restored Temiskaming and Northern Ontario Railway 4-6-2 #701

A great photo of Temiskaming and Northern Ontario Railway (later Ontario Northland Railway) 4-6-2 #701 in Englehart, Ont. by my friend Chris Paxton.

The locomotive, which was built in 1921, was retired from service in 1957. It was cosmetically restored in 2012 by the town of Englehart.

The 701 operated in passenger service between Timmins and North Bay, and from North Bay to Toronto.

Below find a photo of #701 in the snow, provided by Eric Gagnon. I think I like the photo set in summer better!
