  1. Phil, the only customer sidings that 6 axle power can be used on those Brantford assignments is Normerica (pictured) on the Dundas, Blastech in Cainsville, Nicholson & Cates in Caledonia, CGC and Mattice in Hagersville, Rembos and Mabe are the only two places where 6 axle power is not allowed due to curvature.

  2. Odd to see that horn with Conrail-like blue horn caps!

  3. It’s pretty clear I need to make another trip out to Brantford.

  4. Very nice James!

  5. Great pic James. Love the exhaust from ther units. I do have to say that I am surprised that they have 6 axle power on the siding. I will have to look up my subdivision footnotes and see what the restrictions are. Maybe they have changed
