I'm not sure if in 1994 CP and CN shared duties switching the Ford Assembly Plant in Oakville, but it certainly looks that way. Anyone??   CP 1270 & CN 7302 as seen over Royal Windsor Dr.

  1. Huh; had no idea CP was in that part of town.

    I miss end-cab switchers.

  2. You are correct Brad. Whatever power was first up was used by the crew.

  3. The engine track was clearly visible along Royal Windsor back in the day so you could see what was sitting there…Not anymore. The lot in front of it is jammed with Trailers. I used to hang out in the Yard master’s office and caught a ride on a 1200 to the ‘South Yard’ along Cornwall St.

  4. There’s a shot posted by Glenn Courtney of the power track here, it seems whatever was sitting on it was used by whoever needed it. Odd arrangement : http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=23980

  5. This is what I remember as a kid. Lots of switchers at Oakville. Loved this place.

  6. I understood whatever switchers were first in line on engine track either crews used them.
