At the west end of Nickel, CN 4590 and 4569 roll past with a pair of Sante Fe Coal Hoppers fresh from the Rochester & Pittsburgh Coal Yard where they were off loaded.  4569 and GP9's of this era in high nose configuration never failed to please.  With the GP9RM conversion program well underway,  this all too common site soon disappeared.

  1. Hello Steven…Dunnville Sub days ended in 1977, with the trackage ripped up in 1985, still some gons with crossing signs on the Port Colborne downtown spur Jan. 86., but by the time these pics were taken Dunnville Sub was for the history books…Cheers

  2. Thanks Larry…Great Observation, I checked some early shots (mid-80′s) and they were not nose to nose, but it appears in the late 80′s into the 90′s they were coming out of the Falls that way…good catch

  3. Curious , how much of the Dunnville sub was still in place in this timeframe?

  4. Interesting shots you have taken in 89/90. The shot of the 4125 (GP9rm), you posted previously, shows them nose to nose. Here in this photo, nose to nose again. Obviously there must have been a reason to set them up this way, switching on a lead, spotting cars at a difficult location, etc. Must have been something at the Nickel Yard to have them like this. :-)
