The crew of CP TH11 watches as one of the two NSC critters shoves a cut of cars back into the plant property. It felt like mid-July with humidex values well into the high 30s, and as is normal on a hot summer day some storms started to pop up. At the time, the skies to the north and east and started to cloud over and faint rumbles of thunder could be heard in the distance. Luckily for me though, the skies to the west were clear and sunny, which is what mattered most for the shot.

  1. Love spending time here. There should be three critters. #11 #12 both acquired new in 1954 and #10 purchased used.

  2. Thanks Mike

  3. Nice one!

  4. Hey Jamie, looking forward to your Canada Day picture !
    Maybe the flag on the critter is to indicate wind direction in case they have to buck a head wind.

  5. Thanks Larry, Michael, and John.

    I believe the two NSC units are numbered 11 and 12, with this being 12, though I admittedly have never really paid much mind to the numbers on these two. I shot both out working yesterday. The Canadian flags are a nice touch, I agree. There is a huge one that flies at the plant, and I have a shot in mind to share in about a month’s time for Canada Day. :)

    The Welded Tube critter down in Welland also has a Canadian flag mounted on it. Must be a critter thing.

  6. Very nice picture Jamie. Hamilton looks like a great place to photograph switching moves, private small locos, transfers, all of which left Toronto ages ago. Maybe this should be labeled “David & Goliath”, what with all those CP “horses” waiting for the small yellow critter. Love the real patriotic Canadian flag, not just something painted. Does it have number ? Thank you for this posting.

  7. Love It….pure Hammer town !!

  8. Nice, a footboard with a big chrome grab on. The NSC crews have it pretty good. :-)
