Your grandad was one of Ontario's steam engine masters. There wasn't many Ontario engines that weren't touched in some way by him.

Thanks to Onkel G for submitting another fine article and some photos of the Sawyers to E & E Magazine. Jim's 17 graces the cover here.

I grew up knowing your grandfather well, and had made many trips to Baldwin with either Sherwood Hume, or one of his other drivers to pick up both the 17 Sawyer, and the Goodison to bring to Cookstown. Also had a couple of trips in to the shop in Newmarket. The first time I saw my grandfather's 17, which is the cut-away boiler shown in pictures in this thread, was at Baldwin.

Sadly, I have no idea where it went. My grandpa passed in the late 80's and it was likely sold.
