A rainy June day, around 3 pm and TH&B has just dropped (2) covered hoppers at the INCO Nickel Refinery complex.  The hoppers contain materials used in the production of Nickel Foundry additive products and were melted on site.  The locomotive is crossing Reuter Road.  That is JTL Integrated machine in the background with a facility expansion underway.  The company still exists with some of North America's largest machining capabilities (see James Knott's 05/23/2019 flatcar photo bound for JTL).  JTL Integrated Machine came to international attention in November 2018 when then Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland made an announcement at the plant on the Steel Tarrif struggles with the USA, and tensions with Saudi Arabia. 
 Within 2 years of this picture being taken the locomotive would return to her birthplace at General Motors Diesel in London, Ontario as their yard switcher.  Surprisingly #57 maintained a good paint finish right up to the end of TH&B service.
