I REMEMBER SEEING THIS WITH MY FATHER IN HAMILTON ONT AS AN 8 YEAR OLD. AFTER WATCHING THEIR MAJESTIES GO BY IN FRONT OF US IN THE BUICK ON JAMES ST. MY FATHER TOO ME BY THE HAND AND SIAD 'COME ON, WE'LL GO SEE THE "BLUE TRAIN". WE DID SEE IT AND SHE WAS A BEAUTY, THE LOCOMOTIVE WAS REALLY SOMETHING!

Thanks for sharing this very interesting personal moment.

Royal Visit, 1939 - Royal Train Arrives at Glencoe, Ontario (slightly wider view)


A black and white photograph showing the Glencoe, Ontario arrival of the royal train pulled by Canadian National Railway's Engine 6400. Crowds wait on either side of the train to greet King George VI and his wife, Queen Elizabeth. The view is similar to another photograph in the London Public Library Image Gallery but shows a slightly wider view which encompasses more of the crowd to the right of the train.
