A blustery day as the Tripleheader prepares to leave Inglewood. Master Mechanic L.L. O’Brien standing in gangway behind engineer Charlie Waters while other crew members make their way back to board. 

The photographer Bob Shaw was a CPR brakeman who photographed trains years ago. He retired as a conductor working out of Lambton.  His main interest was old motorcycles and automobiles. I recall seeing him ride into Lambton yard on an old Indian! Bob had two old wooden box cars in the Here Yard that were full of old car parts! Eventually, he gave them to South Simcoe Railway.  Bob is a great guy with a friendly smile! I am in touch with him from time-to-time and see him at the annual CPR pensioner’s dinner in Toronto.
