As a follow-up to Mr. Dan Dell'Unto's recent post, here is a different view of a deadhead GO move arriving in Hamilton, two months later. According to the slide mount, this is GO 701 and CN 9316 with APCU 904 on the rear of the first consist, followed by GO 704 and CN 9317 with APCU 906 trailing. Unfortunately, the slide does not include the photographer's name.Just over the roofline of the lead coaches, you can see another cut of those tarpaulin-covered short containers on flatcars. Does anyone know what these are?Dan's post is here:http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=47239

  1. Nice addition with the building in the background having a CN crest. Lots of crossovers and switches to complete the picture. A terrific and busy rail scene.
    That yellow thing going down the hill looks like one of those old 3 wheeled street cleaners that turned on a dime.

  2. The brick building above the first coach was moved to Pier 4 and used for offices and washrooms.

  3. The CN-labeled building was their old CN Express terminal, built 1964, apparently closed 1997, and demolished 2009.

    I think that brick building may have been an office building for Canron’s site there, but could be wrong.
