  1. Tank you for your great information as usual Bruce.

  2. The iron bridge in the background is Gallagher Road. It ran from Plains Road northward, over the Oakville Sub to Kerns Road. But between CN constructing Aldershot Yard in 1964, and the 403 being built thereafter, it was truncated at the tracks and the bridge demolished. My friends & I used to ride our bikes to this location because it was neat to see the passing trains from above.
    And yes, thats an old CN silver painted ice reefer on the spur at Aldershot Cold Storage.

  3. Amazing shot! Any idea what road went over the bridge in the far distance?

  4. Love the Green & Gold Doug!

  5. And this unit is apparently still around.. here is it is in 2016 as CCGX 4014!

    Apparently went to CN 4001 then into the CANDO fold thereafter – unless the source I used is wrong.
