Not Easily Forgotten
When I lived in Hamilton as a kid in the 70’s, I used to enjoy coming downtown from where I lived on the mountain and seeing the old TH&B Railway steam locomotive No. 103 that was on display at Gage Park. A point came when my family left the province of Ontario but when I returned to Hamilton later in life, I was shocked to see 103 was no longer there. It turns out that old engine and caboose are still well-preserved at the Westfield Heritage Village. Not many of such pieces of engineering exist anymore, and it’s a pleasure to see that this one hasn’t been dismantled, melted down and lost forever.
