Rather rough old image of recent history this is, but it gives an idea of the Chatham St TH&B facilities behind a freight getting ready to move out. TH&B 72, 75, 73 and 402 constitute the power for a train coming out of Aberdeen Yard, which is in the far background below the "mountain". Background centre is the location of the TH&B shop and to the centre-left, the old coaling tower. This view is from 44 years ago. All gone now.

  1. Brad: I am next to the Chatham St track overpass off Dundurn. The old enginehouse and shop area was accessed from Chatham St back then. Now, all the buildings have been razed. I am at least a half KM down from the Yard Office.

  2. So round the corner to the left, you’re just farther down at the yard throat. The yard office I guess is more appropriate. This one I was alluding to: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=4204518

  3. Aberdeen ‘station’ is out of sight arund the corner in the background. What I was standing on to take this shot, I honestly forget. Maybe just terra firma.

  4. Very nice Mr Mooney as always. So you would be standing on the station ‘platform’ would you been?
