TH&B locomotive #57 is on boxcar switching duties at Maple Leaf Mills.  The once so common boxcars that filled the Port Colborne railyards would disappear completely within a few years.  The switching is holding up traffic at the King Street crossing. TH&B Van 83 is in the mix.

  1. Thanks James… I must congratulate you on your shots… genius…I particularly liked the night shot drop at VALE in what is left of CN Nickel Yard… brilliant stuff…

  2. Hi Guys… MLM Port Colborne was the largest flour mill in the British Empire, it burned for a week in the mid 60′s and was rebuilt to it’s current layout. What you would be seeing is bagged flour…and this was pretty common to see that many 40′ boxcars lining the yards… Cheers

  3. RMEO in Smiths Falls had the wisdom to save one of these 40′ insulated-heated boxcars, in Action Yellow no less. I liked when they were common like this…

  4. These are very neat to see, Michael. Was just down in Port Colborne today – while nothing like this, it is still a place that has its fair share of points of interest.

  5. Thats an awful lot of insulated boxes for MLM, what did they load in these – bagged flour or beans or…??
