  1. Great catch Larry! Do you happen to have the number of the van?

  2. CP Van Number was 437029

  3. Those were the days… nice photo Larry.

  4. An original Road Switcher… M L W S11 circa 1959

  5. 6616 was a frequent relief engine on these jobs and the Woodstock Roadswitchers (yard) jobs. The regular power was either 6589 or 6590. The S-11s & usual S-3s are yard engines suitable for road assignments because they have a pilot (between the footboards) and a 3 chime horn.The smaller units were eventually replaced by SW1200RSs. In the early 1970s we were handling a lot of cars on the Tillsonburg jobs & a single 660hp unit made for extra switching because it couldn’t shove a full track of cars up into Livingstons.
