Caption: CP 4050-8431-4466 on train ‘OOD’ at Guelph Jct May 16/73.
The 'OOD' ( Oshawa Oakville Detroit ) was a dedicated auto industry train that could be counted upon to show up in the same timeframe every day with whatever power was necessary to keep it on schedule. This brightly painted lashup was irresistible as it worked throttle wide open to make the top of the grade with 76 cars.
