TH&B 72 holds for a light while the Niagara Falls train passes. Once the Niagara Falls train has cleared Hamilton Jct., TH&B 72 will cross over and pass under the High Level bridge (now the Thomas B. McQueston Bridge) and make its way to Aberdeen Yard.   It is 1968 and automobiles traversed the iron bridge that was replaced later by a concrete footbridge for access to the Laking Garden of the Royal Botanical Gardens.  The old Plains Rd. bridge can also be seen in the background.

  1. No, only 3 of them – 1917, 1916, 1913 became 1400-1402 ( so 1401/1916 is currently being refurbished by Cando to become their 1009)

  2. Did all of these 1900′s get renumbered to the present day 1400′s?
