Shown at Stratford, Ontario on May 5, 1959 is Canadian National 2-8-0 No. 2586, a member of class N-4-a erected for the Grand Trunk Railway by American Locomotive Company in 1907. By the time Walter Taylor snapped this photo, from the collection of Tom Rock of T.D.R. Productions, most of these locomotives would have been retired — but it is hardly surprising that three members of the N-4-a class (not including this example) have been preserved at locations in Ontario and Québec. For the specifications of the N-4 class, see the commentary for No. 2629.
