In late August 1980, I had just been classed as Locomotive Engineer. I had all of 1 week's seniority and I was forced on a midnight yard job in Sarnia. It wasn't bad, at least I had weekends off. I was out driving around after having slept until 2pm, when I heard a CPR horn on the far side of town. I waited at the Wellington Street crossing and caught this westbound with 4723-4562 just a-boppin' along with no work to do. I never noticed those trailers until now, they look a little unusual with an unfamiliar logo. Must have been for the Windsor pig ramp, anyone know what they could be ?
