When I first dug out this image I realized I had forgotten those huge overhead signal structures along the old line at Welland. All that track, heck, it looks like a raceway.
In this early spring view CR 7438 with a couple of boxcars and ever present caboose is heading eastward. In the background the Welland TH&B/CR yard office is visible, the same one that is there today. And out front was TH&B 73I know, because I went down to get a picture of it after this train went by.

  1. Welland yard looks so empty in the background

  2. Thanks, Jakob. It certainly doesn’t look like anything seen in S. Ontario.:o)

  3. Looks like a raceway? It WAS a raceway.

    Fantastic image, thank you for sharing.
