Sequence 1 of 4  CN 3201-3213-3210 seen at Kenilworth Avenue behind the Centre Mall in Hamilton.  This is the Dofasco ore train and has slowed to change the switch at the lead to Parkdale Yard in order to head toward the N&NW Spur which traverses the industrial sector in Hamilton.  Note the 3201 has a high headlight.  The 3200 and 3201 were delivered with high mounted headlights.  Also of interest is all of the TV antennas reaching into the air atop the houses.

  1. This collection is wonderful. I would have been 6 when they were taken, but I spent hours waiting for, and eventually working the ore train in the early 80′s. To see how it evolved from very new cars with 3 C424′s to 80+ cars and 5 units is a treat. When I worked it, we pulled in Dofasco, dumped the van, and pulled the train right down to the shoreline. The power would cut off, and back the empties back to the van and then back onto the Grimsby Sub; then back to Mac Yard for the North End handoff, or into the yard for inspection. For southern Ontario, it was a real treat while we had it.

  2. Hey Dave, leave it to you to point out those antennas !!

  3. Yes, those antennas were high for a reason. The towers on the escarpemnt in Hamilton were much lower as reception was better.

  4. In grade school (8/9) a buddy of mine had a TV areal and no cable TV (he came over often – we had Cable). They still had a high mast antenna and even then, you didn’t always get perfect reception out of Buffalo but American broadcast TV was so much better. This was late 80′s early 90′s too!

  5. Classic series Dave with classic power.
    I think those high TV aerials are due to location – below and along the escarpment – making it challenging to get Buffalo stations without some height.
