It was 1960 for me.....but lots of excursion steam in Toronto when I grew up there.
I didn't have a chance to see CNR # 6218 run but was on the 2nd trip of 6060 after its return to service and had the chance to ride behind her on a few more trips after that.
As for CPR steam #1057, #136 and #1201 were just a stone's throw away from the CN roundhouse just east at CPs John Street roundhouse.
I would hang around on weekends at the both facilities and learned as much as I could
#1201, I had the great pleasure of crawling inside its boiler with a pneumatic needle gun for a few hours while it was under going restoration for operation.
Also outside in storage were #5361 and recently departed Royal Hudson #2839(off to the USA for fantrip service
Good times and great memories....
