Getting a decent photograph of any train climbing the escarpment from Hamilton to Vinemount is always difficult. But still worth a try.  I'm not exactly sure where along the ridge I shot this from but I have a feeling it is just west of DeWitt Rd in the Creek. I doubt there is  a single building lot left down at the bottom of the hill, either. In the misty background once can see the beach strip and Burlington on the far side. Power on what I have listed as a rock train is TH&B 72, 73, 57, 51 and 55. Upon cresting the escarpment, TH&B 55 was cut off and returned down into the city. The train itself was probably going to Port Maitland.

  1. Your location is correct, that’s the ‘plateau’ as we creekers called it, had many friends live up there – the ‘rich’ part of town really.
