Steam locomotive 6015 Jasper Canada.

The 6015 as stated in an earlier post was from the first batch of "Mountain Type" of Locomotive built for the Canadian National. The 6015 belonged to the U-1-a class of 4-8-2, built new in August 1923. The 6015 was delivered from the Canadian Locomotive Company at Kingston, Ontario. Out of the entire batch from this class, 6000 to 6015, only the 6015 was preserved. The 6015 was first donated to the CRHA (Canadian Railway Historical Association) at the Canadian Railway Museum in Delson Quebec, near Montreal. When Locomotive 6060 Class U-1-f (Montreal Locomotive Works) was removed from Static Display in Jasper in the 1980's, the 6015 took it's place in Jasper.

Hi, Marcel, I was in Jasper for about half an hour in 2004 and missed this one completely! I guess it must have been at the far end of the station!

Hi Peter,
Yes it was at the right hand site of the station. Don't know how you missed it, it is rather big :-)

Added by Marcel Sloover on 25 December 2010.
Well, you must agree that it's a VERY long station! We were at the very rear of our train.

Added by Peter Langsdale on 25 December 2010.
I agree with you Peter..... And the trains in Canada are also very long. Specially the freight trains. But perhaps if you visit Jasper in the future, you now know it's there.

bj même si les commentaires sont assez ancien je voulais simplement dire que j'ai fait la même chose que PETER, j'ai raté la locomotive pourtant je l'ai cherché mais à ma décharge il faisait mi-nuit quand je suis arrivé à JASPER et j'ai compris après qu'elle se situais dans un endroit mal éclairé.

"Good day. Even though the comment is quite old, I just wanted to say that I did the same thing PETER, I missed the locomotive even though I searched, but in my defence it was midnight when I arrived in JASPER and I realized afterwards that the locomotive was located in a poorly lit area.
