In 1981, there was still plenty of branchline character along the CP Princeton Sub. 
The Princeton wayfreight is arriving at Princeton with just a van behind still high nosed GP9 8617. The train order board is a study in simplicity, and the station is about as basic as they got.  Unfortunately, a few short years later, it would all be gone.

  1. Perfect scene. Pity such a nice old building would be deemed expendable. It is a classic.
