No Graffiti!  Back in the 60's, we did not have graffiti all over the sides of freight cars as witnessed here on train 307 at the site of the old Dundas station.  This westbound freight is grinding up the escarpment with the familiar rock outcropping which identifies pictures taken here.  The station is long gone but I am sure it will be remembered by many, including Mr. Mercer who I believe spent some time at the operator's desk.

  1. Yes, because newsprint was considered High Class. But you’d never load rolls into a 6ft door box either

  2. Bruce, weren’t the yellow doors for newsprint?

  3. ‘ OS Dundas… ‘
    Yellow-door boxcars for the all-important ‘high class merchandise’ business.
    And yes, local piggyback traffic for southwestern Ontario.

  4. Lovely! The classic Dundas shot.
