The CNR 6213 is a preserved 4-8-4 steam locomotive. It was a member of the Canadian National Railway's massive fleet of U-2-g “Northerns”.[1] The 6213 is on static display in Toronto, Ontario. There are possible options of restoring the U-2-g to operating condition, but it would be quite expensive to restore the 4-8-4 and Vanderbilt tender to operating condition. In June 2009, the 6213 was moved from the CNE grounds to the John St. Roundhouse, where its new home will be the Toronto Railway Heritage Centre.
