One of the most exciting recent additions to our group is this number plate from locomotive 6167.
When 6167 was selected to be the excursion locomotive for CN, it was found the number plate was missing off the front of the locomotive, it was stolen. As a result, the shop crew getting 6167 ready for service had to create a new plate, and made this one. It is hand painted by the shop workers,
This plate was used on many excursion trips done by 6167. When studying pictures from that time, this plate is clearly noticeable because it is flat without raised letters, like original Canadian National number plates.
The plate on 6167 today is a replica of the original, and the third plate to be on 6167. Sadly the original has never been located.
