  1. If it initially arrived on the pulpwood train, then it was 469, not 449 ( which was the Aliquippa ore move from Dane Ont)

  2. Actually, I lied. I photographed their really tiny engine back in ’04 I believe….gotta dig that photo out.

  3. This is one I have not photographed yet. One of these days I shall get my butt out there.

  4. Can you imagine all the people – male and female – who have worked at that paper mill since 1913. Still is – I believe – the number one employer in Thorold.

  5. A local operation that I need to photograph one day. They still have this switcher, and a black SW1200RS.

  6. They used to get a huge chunk of their wood by boat/rail from the Black River forest neat Marathon.
