Litho print, Royal Canadian Mounted Police
Pictured here is "Climax," a unique steam locomotive manufactured by Climax Locomotive Company in Corty, Pennsylvania. Strictly a workhorse locomotive, it is instantly recognizable from its slanted cylinders, and the low gearing gives it the extra power for pulling heavy loads of timber. Also, the peculiar looking road bed - instead of rock, they utilized the most plentiful available material, timber.
