Built by Baldwin in Sept 1879 (serial number 4774), H&D #3 had 10” x 12” cylinders and weighed 16 900 lbs. In 1897, this engine was performing construction work on the electrification of the line at the Sand Bank cut (near where the bridge over Cootes Dr to the McMaster west parking lot is now) when it was hit by H&D #4. #3 was so badly damaged that it was not rebuilt, and was retired in 1898. Charles Sturrock bought this engine as well, but was then able to sell the engine to Beck Lumber of Penetanguishene, Ontario. The engine was rebuilt, and it worked until it was retired in 1924. H&D #3 is currently on display in Penetanguishene, next to the Centennial Museum on Burke St

The locomotive pictured is #4, but it is identical to #3. And yes, it really is a steam locomotive.
