Long cut of MoW gondolas makes a sort of 'different' perch for a shot of eastbound VIA 6761 on a rather gloomy damp day at Dundas. The B unit is 6865.

  1. No, Paul. Thats the funny thing. I do not even recall seeing one.

  2. Arnold, the tire tread marks on the residual material in the car and on the between-car apron tell me there should be a Pettibone Dragger-back Speedloader somewhere in that drop-end gon consist. Any chance you snapped a photo of it?

  3. Interesting view of the train.

  4. Ahhhh! thanks :)

  5. I’m standing in the bed of a drop end gon, a long string of them; on the back track at old Dundas Station, which is just out of sight behind the train. Wouldn’t do that these days. :o )

  6. Rob, agreed 100%. This ‘sunny day only rule’ is just bollox.

    So i’m curious, what is this structure that once was where you are standing?

  7. The conductor was laughing too hard. All joking aside, this shot just proves you don’t need perfect sun for an interesting photo.

  8. I’m surprised there isn’t a hand out the window waving hi to the guy taking pictures in the gons. ;-)

  9. Great photo as always Arnold—thanks for sharing
