  2. Full Caption: Daily Double Duty. For twenty four years (1955 to 1978 inclusive) the CP Bolton station Operator daily duties included hooping two sets of train orders to each of CP trains #11 and #12, the Toronto section of ‘The Canadian’. On a warm September 1977 Saturday the CP Operator delivers (hoops) train orders to Train #11′s head end crew member, note the second hoop in the Operator’s left hand for Train #11′s Conductor (see next image). Alas, from the date of this negative CP Rail Train 11 has less than one year remaining on these rails and likewise the Operator’s position will be abolished within two years. Kodak Kodacolor II negative, ASA100, transported by a Nikkormat EL. Photographer S.Danko.
