I would agree with mldeets that the engine has a 4 digit number. I am not an expert, just looking at the GTR roster in Railroad History 147, but 247? is a 2-6-0 built by the GTR in 1891. It would have had this number between 1910 and 1923. If the original 4-4-0 engine in question is also GTR built one would expect it to have a similar appearance to the 2-6-0 in general.

As the engine is hauling box cars, your identification as a 2-6-0 makes a lot of sense.

Thanks,

Dennis

Mideets and Peter B.
Found this slightly better scan of the same photo at Port Perry.

Probably hard to see the difference on the forum posting, but definitely 4 digits. # 247?.
2476 or 2478 would seem a real possibility.
Good eyes you have.

Thanks for the input.

Dennis.
