- The focal point of the Heritage Square in Rainy River Ontario is the '4008', a 2-10-2 Sante Fe type steam locomotive built by Dunkirk in Montreal, 1916. This locomotive was used to haul 65 cars of freight between Rainy River and Atikokan during the 50's. This locomotive was donated by R.J. McMillian, V.P. C.N.R. to the town of Rainy River on July 30,1960. It was originally located at the west end of town on land owned by Joe Beyak, moved to its present location on Nov. 9,1989. This was the largest engine owned by the C.N.R. because the trip between Rainy River and Atikokan was hillier than the average prairie landscape and required more power. The final run was on Dec.2,1958, operated by engineer John Sirman and fireman Don Marchuk of Rainy River.
