…and why waste a precious (film ) frame – on a gray dreary drab January Sunday afternoon?


January 1978 Kodak  Negative transported in a Nikkormat EL by S.Danko


More 1970's  Agincourt
 

          CPR 4037  
 

  CP Rail 4035  
 

  December 1978  
 

  ..uh oh..  
 


What's interesting: 
 

in this b & w shot perhaps eight different locomotive models ( where can you capture that today?) 
 

left to right 
 

GMD FP7a ( CPR 4037 ) 
 

MLW C-424 ( coupled to 4037) 
 

three GMD GP7, TH&B 71 - 74 - 75, somewhat unusual as the norm for the TH&B Kinnear / Starlight would be a GP7 – GP9 – GP7 lashup ( 7x - 40x - 7x ) 
 

GMD FP7 or FP9 
 

two MLW M636 ( CP Rail 4722 - 47xx ) 
 

MLW RS-23 
 

GMD SW9 ( CP Rail 7400 ) 
 

MLW (M636 or C-424)? 
 

..glad I did use that ( film ) frame …. not wasted after all....and time is everything....
