I was out doing some night shots in Hamilton and saw the Bunge critter working to bring empty meal hoppers into the plant for loading. After they'd dropped some loads in the yard, they stopped on Victoria Ave to throw one of the switches on either side of the road long enough for me to grab a couple of shots from the corner at Burlington Street. It was a fun evening for night shots, as later on I came across 555 at NSC.

  1. It also has the ‘ Link and Pin ‘ drawhead below the standard coupler, from it’s original owner, Dominion Steel & Coal/ DOSCO. That would be for pulling spacer buggies in/out of the furnace areas.

  2. Good design feature to always carry a second set of coupler components haha. Awesome shot btw, industrial Hamilton at its finest.

  3. Yeah they just pull the cars from the one end into the plant then shove them back to the yard. Just back and forth between the plant and the meal yard, so I guess they would only need the one. These are the kinds of things I never even notice without someone pointing them out.

  4. Is it just me or is there no knuckle in the west end coupler? Guessing they may never pull cars from that end lol
