No. 6407 waits for a train to pull in 1956.

Grand Trunk Western No. 6407 is a class U-4-b 4-8-4 "Northern" type steam locomotive built by the Lima Locomotive works in 1938 for the Grand Trunk Western Railroad.

No. 6407 was used for passenger service for the Grand Trunk Western Railroad.

It was also often used to haul freight trains due to many GTW Northerns being occupied pulling passenger trains; in later years, diesel-electric locomotives hauled the passenger trains.

This locomotive was retired from service in 1959 and it was sold for Scrap.


In the Thomas and Friends film "The Great Race", the character Vinnie, is designed as Grand Trunk Western No. 6407. He is portrayed as a bully.
