"2 cars Starlight"...."1 car Starlight"....."ease er up Starlight" .  CP's Starlight - the 70's Toronto - Hamilton turn periodically lifted CP 520XXX series 89' container flats at Obico. I have no idea where they were destined...there was no container on/off facility on the TH&B...but engineer Smokey Anderson - hand on the throttle...stoagie in the other hand...carefully makes the joint. In a few minutes....the train will call the CN for permission to proceed down to Canpa for the short run to Hamilton.

  1. Thanks Steve…I think the cigar in the one hand adds a dimension of the reality of what is was like.

  2. A well done portrait of the man at work. Nicely done.
