  1. Yes, I actually caught 469 coming under the Plains Rd bridge before I photographed 466 with 4010-4009 at Aldershot East. I then shot this picture of 469 at Watertown Rd.

  2. The first 2 C630′s arrived right at the end of Aug1967, and then for the remainder, delivery started in Dec1967, and continued into mid 1968.
    Dave – I have this train logged on Jan 14 – 68
    Perhaps you also caught 466 that day, with 4009-4010 ??

  3. You are absolutely correct. The Canadian Trackside Guide says the 2300′s were built in 1970. I have requested a correction to the caption text.

  4. I think the second unit is a 20xx. IIRC – the 23xx’s werent built until 70/71 ?

    I remember in July 1971, as a little gaffer – climbing on a new 23xx during 6218′s retirement weekend in Belleville.

  5. WOW even in the 60′s they have Ford auto parts cars on the head end!
