South Simcoe 136 was built in 1883 by Canadian Pacific Railway and for the rest of that decade helped build Canada’s transcontinental railroad. CPR retired 136 in 1960, after which was used in CBC’s TV series The National Dream, and several documentaries. It was then rebuilt and used for tourism duties. It began its duties for South Simcoe Railway in 1993 and operated until 2004 or 05 when it fell into boiler disrepair. It was out of service until August of this year, 2011 when it was returned to service. #136 is the oldest operating steam locomotive in Canada.
