...if you wait long enough...


...anything can show up at CP Agincourt....


 somehow  MLW RS23  #8041 ( 'ugly 80') strayed from the confines of  N.B. ( assigned to Saint John) and


  that ALCO, 1943 built, S2  is a 'senior' as of 1977 ( and those S2's  had the ' lumpiest '  idle imaginable) 


 At CP Rail Agincourt, February 1977 Kodak Tri X negative by S. Danko


 what 's interesting


 CPR 7012 predates  ' modern '  CPR steam power:  all the G5's /  some P2's /  the T1c's  ( MLW  built Pacific /  CLC & MLW built Mikado /  MLW built Selkirk )  


 8041 and sisters became Windsor and Hantsport power ( and other sisters daily OSR power)


 7012 retired by 1986


... from time to time a 7000 series would be assigned to  the  'Push' ,  to assist eastbounds up the hill from Leaside ( North Toronto Sub east end ) through Don Mills , Kennedy  ( Belleville Sub)  to Agincourt – the S2 pulling power was something to see & hear:  at  Leaside,  a  single  S2,   would  lift   two  4700's  and  their  train  while the 4700's crew put up their feet and watched the show !
