My dad spent some thirty-three years (1956 – 1989) in the employ of the Steel Company of Canada, or ‘Stelco’ as the once mighty firm was better known. Rising through the ranks over the years to middle management, he achieved status sufficient to secure an unrestricted photo pass for a certain interested offspring. If only I had the wisdom to use it more than once! No. 92 was delivered from GMD London in January of 1966. Prior to being repainted and re-branded as Lake Erie Works No. 459, the squat cabbed switcher would toil away at the Hamilton water front complex until mid 2007. The unit, now safety yellow, is reported as still being active at the Lake Erie shore steel maker. The statement on the rear coupled rolling stock reads ‘WARNING DO NOT RIDE ON GOAT’. What is the purpose of a GOAT? A fascinating, somewhat dated history/analysis of Stelco is available online.

  1. Thanks for sharing. The goats were long gone when I worked around the property. They were only doing hot metal service along with scrap and byproduct deliveries when I left. That looks like its around the BOF or the open hearth.

  2. The “Goats” had a standard height drawbar on one end and a lower one on the other end for in-plant rolling stock.

  3. Oh boy. At least you went.

    BTW Hamilton switched to trackmobile again. They bought an Atlas, largest trackmobile available new today. 41 (us) ton.

    Dammit. I wonder what they will do with 89 and 84.
