CN steam pile driver, 50825, rests in the storage track at Field, Ontario.  The crew is waiting for the Super Continental, train #2, to pass before resuming work on the wooden trestle east of the station which is visible in the background.  Notice that the poles in the foreground have their ends rounded in preparation for installation.  Map location is an approximation as much has changed in this area since the rail line was removed.

  1. Great photo Don. Classic work equipment shot including a red fleet boarding car. CN 50825, Work Equipment No. 809-52, was a 33 ton capacity steam pile driver. Lots of creosote on those pencils!
