When the TH&B ceased to be in 1987, the house-cleaning began. Road power was absorbed by parent CPR, while switchers faded away to oblivion. TH&B 51 is on the property of OSR at Salford, ON.  TH&B 57 went to GMD London as their #57. The others? Well, #'s 56,53,54,58,55 and 52 are shown here; all lined up for Atlas Steel (Intermetco) to scrap. Two of these survived; #55 is at Falconbridge Mining of Belledune, NB. and #58 is at Upper Merion & Plymouth(PA) RR, going there by way of Brandywine Valley in 1991. The 52,53 and 54 are NW-2 models, and the 55,56 & 58 pictured are SW-9.

  1. Quite a sad sight. When was the Canal Sub built? I can’t find much info on it.

  2. Well now I know where #58 that I have on my layout ended up. Sad shot to see though!

  3. A sad photo…thanks for sharing this one Arnold, it really shows the “end” of the TH&B. It appears that at least two of the SW’s have had their headlights removed?
