Original Watercolour - Engine No. 5588 - Windsor Collection
Engine No. 5588, the "Spirit of Windsor".
The City of Windsor website provides the following historical information about this train:
This Pacific Type 4-6-2 Steam Locomotive is dedicated to the memory of glorious Steam Trains, Canadian Railroading and to the citizens of Windsor. No.5588 was built in the Montreal Locomotive Works in 1911 for the Canadian National Railways and saw many years of freight and passenger service in Southern Ontario before being retired in 1961. In 1962 the Historic Vehicle Society of Ontario (Windsor) launched a public campaign to save old 5588 from the scrap heap and to bring it to Windsor for the edification of future generations. Christened the "Spirit of Windsor," No.5588 was dedicated to the Community on May 6, 1965.
The train is located in Dieppe Park on Windsor's riverfront.
