CP's 0630 yard job is pictured crossing the Jackknife Bridge in Thunder Bay with the 8100 solo and 85 loads of potash from Mosaic on the drawbar. The potash had come in previously on a 620 which was joint unit potash and grain. The 85 loads are destined for Thunder Bay Terminals Ltd, which was a busy place in my week in town, handling quite a bit of potash as well as 100 loads of coke from CN. The bridge, which is a rather impressive structure, was completed in April 1913 and formerly had two functioning decks - one for rail (lower) and another for cars (upper), which was dismantled in 2004. For those curious to see, David Young previously offered this view of the other side of the bridge.

  1. I’ll bet you were in your glory running around that town for a week once again.

  2. Sure was! Quite enjoy it there. Lots to see I can’t see elsewhere in Ontario. Friendly crews too – doesn’t take long to get to know some of them.

    For accuracy’s sake for the caption, I forgot to mention the CP 850 (unit coal) that unloaded at TBTL while I was there also.
