That GSC loco bed in Locomotive Cyclopedia issue 1947 on page 8-608 is I'm 99% sure a Niagara bed. I recently finished 3D modelling it and it looks identical. In the image the pilot beam ends have been cut off to bore the cylinders.

That GSC bed photo is a "stock" photo and has been used several times in railway histories (one I have is by Richard Prince) to represent an example of the cast steel frames being used in their locomotives.
