  1. I’m not sure what the westbound pig traffic would have been in 1964, but the power is more like what they’d put on the ‘pickup’. Interesting that the units are back to back,the prevailing theory when I started in 1973 was that the “pups” worked better if facing forward, that they might overheat if backing up, that seemed to include RS-23s which seemed to me more or less interchangeable with the SW1200RS on pickup power. That wasn’t applied on the Oakville jobs or the Goderich job though, such units were often back to back.
