  1. Riiiiight…. and now that I think about it.. I wonder if the parts cars I would see on ham turn in the early 2000′s (2005 ish) were for TDS automotive in Tillsonburg..

  2. From doing some quick research it would appear that 526 was a train that exercised trackage rights on the CN Oakville Subdivision between Hamilton Jct and Canpa. I would guess those boxcars came from either Oshawa or Oakville possibly.

  3. True. Early to mid 1990′s trains had geeps… i’d trust what was on the slide! The leaser certainly indicates a mainline train as these were rarely used on locals.

  4. “526″ was written on slide ahead of the loco numbers. Checked in train# section of 1994 & 1996 Trackside Guides, but not listed. However 521-522 are NF-Toronto and Toronto-NF trains, same as 523-524.

  5. This looks like the ham turn, it often carried a couple parts cars well into the early 2000′s but I have no idea where to/from.
