On May 19, 1974 CN had a huge freight derailment about a mile east of Bowmanville.  Both main lines of the Kingston Sub. were blocked and several trains detoured on CP over the next couple of days.  Here we see westbound Turbo 129 on one year old welded rail at mile 163.9 of CP's Belleville Sub.  This view from my yard is now almost blocked by trees.

  1. Very nice. I’d be curious if anyone knows the fuel consumption of these gas turbine beasts. I suspect they wouldn’t last long in today’s high fuel prices..

  2. Talk about a rare mileage shot, Doug, Turbo on the Belleville Sub. Very nice.
