In this photo taken in December 1932 in Niagara Falls, New York, 2-8-2 No. 2022 of class H-7c poses at the coaling tower in her former identity as Michigan Central No. 7922. This engine was among the class H-7 locomotives that were assigned to the Canada Southern (CASO), the Michigan Central's extension across southern Ontario — hence the required "cowcatcher" pilot instead of the footboards used on many other NYC System freight locomotives. These CASO H-7s were among the last steam engines operated by the New York Central System. A Gary Steubben photo in George Elwood's collection, taken in Fort Erie, Ontario in June, 1955, shows No. 2022 still under steam, and she was not retired till February 1956. (Some 2-8-0s remained in transfer service in the Buffalo area till April 1957.)
