Train Number 5, the "LaSalle" eases up to its station stop at Dundas on a fine summer's evening in 1962. She has lots of power tonight for the 11 car consist--GTW GP9s 4912 and 4918 (the latter in the "new" orange/black colours) as well as CN RS18 3102 and an unidentified sister.

  1. …Fantastic work guys, don’t stop!

  2. Ralph I am afraid it’s not possible. Due to colour shifting of early 60′s Ektachrome? slides and exposure issues this really was the best option. We salvaged as much as we could to get this out in B&W as it was the only way.

  3. post original please

  4. I would far prefer to see “imperfect” shots from 50 years ago- even 30 years ago (The MLW days) than not see them at all. These are historic treasures; history on film and I hope the editorial staff will significantly loosen the standards to allow more shots like this….from the year I was born, but never got to see.

  5. AWESOME!!!!! Many more please.
