  1. When did Reclamation Yard stop being used as a storage site for retired engines?

  2. Great image that is certainly somber and historic at the same time.

  3. I remember them well at PSC Montreal in 1968 as I was apprentice,they brought them in to remove their twin cramshaft engine and generators and also the traction motors i think ,then they sent the bodies somewhere.

  4. Thanks to mercer, I believe that might have been Oshawa 401. Perhaps enough of the “4″ could not have been seen, so I thought it was 101.

  5. I think the electric ( steeplecab) could be ex Oshawa Railway 401…??. 400-403 were all cut up at this yard by early 1969.

  6. Yes, Mr. Mooney is correct. Seeing a whole class of locomotives go into extinction just doesn’t feel proper.

  7. Sad and beautiful at the same time.
