Ontario Rail Association's former CP 4-4-0 136 and 4-6-0 D10h 1057 (lettered for Credit Valley Railway) get serviced inside the International Harvester plant grounds off Burlington Street in Hamilton during May 1974, with some of ORA's other equipment stored in the background. They may have been here to use the old IHC steam facilities from when IHC ran ex-CN steam switchers to switch their plant in the 1950's.

Today, both 136 and 1057 are now at the South Simcoe Railway in Tottenham.

  1. You raised an interesting question, Mark. I’d assumed it moved here on CN (an assumption based on absolutely nothing other than that’s where my mind went) and you’ve assumed TH&B. Both are possible. Any idea, Bill?

  2. Woah… This is hard to picture maneuvering around the Belt Line haha. Thanks for sharing Bill!

  3. Holy crap
