Fonctions : CNR Steam Locomotive 6173 was built in April 1940 by Montréal Locomotive Works as part of order Q388. This locomotive was a U-2-e class 4-8-4 locomotive and was built with a Vanderbilt tender. Locomotive 6173 was scrapped in Montreal during October 1961, but its tender was saved. This tender, approximately 38 feet (11.526 m.) long had a tare (light) weigh of 128,250 lb. (58,097.25 kg) and could carry 11,600 Imperial gallons (52,780 Litres) of water and 18 tons (16.326 tonnes) of coal for a total operating (gross) weight of 280,250 lbs (126,953.25 kg). To carry this weight it was equipped with 6-wheel Commonwealth trucks having 34¼" (86.99 cm) wheels and 6 x 11 (15.24 x 27.94 cm) journal bearings. The roller bearings have been replaced with friction bearings. In 1960 the fire fighting capabilities around the Atlantic Region were upgraded with Moncton Shops converting 6 late model Vanderbilt tenders for this use. One extra fire fighting tender, CN 52147, was the seventh and last, out-shopped in 1961 in the CNR John Street Shops. Since Moncton had used all tenders available here, the tender from 6173 had to be shipped from Montréal. During these conversions, the coal compartment was modified and converted to the pump room and the water capacity was increased slightly. A standard draft gear and coupler were added to the front end and AB brakes were installed. After conversion, CN 52147 was assigned to Edmundston, NB, for its entire career and spent most of its time stored inside the roundhouse in a ready condition. It was the last Atlantic Region fire fighting tender to be retired in 1986 and was one of the last of the former steam engine tenders on the CN system. This Fire Fighting Tender was donated by CN Rail to CRHA (NB Division) and was moved to Hillsborough on May 23, 1988.
