Canadian Northern Railway (CNoR) locomotive #108 idles at unknown location, possibly Port Arthur or Fort William, Ontario (now Thunder Bay) circa 1918. The man on the right is likely well-known conductor Johnny Hume.
A 2-6-0 Mogul (Class D-1-a), she was built in April 1889 by the Canadian Locomotive Company for the Northern Pacific and Manitoba Railway. After being acquired by CNoR, she and her sister engine #107 worked mainly on the former Port Arthur, Duluth and Western Railway, which was known at the time as the Duluth Extension/North Lake Subdivision. After nationalization, they became the Canadian National Railways 470 and 471 respectively and continued on the North Lake line until they were scrapped in 1927.
