    VIA CN FPA-4  #6789, VIA CN FPB-4 #6865 and CN RS-18 #3105  have the morning Capital / Lakeshore, trains 43 / 53, on the move, 


    Accelerating from the Cobourg station stop, June 23 1979 Kodachrome by S.Danko


    interesting:
 

    at left note the livestock loading pen and ramp, CN work train caboose and rail transport work car, 


    and the main line ribbon rail looks relatively new, 


    at extreme right is my '77 Impala, and above the Impala is the CP Rail westbound searchlight home signal for the CN  Cobourg Town Spur (CTS) interlocking at CP Rail Belleville Subdivision mile 135.2:

		
    CTS: Switch points face west from CN track KS12 (south service), interlocking controlled by the CP Rail Train Dispatcher.


    CTS: Originally the Cobourg Railway Company incorporated 1834, commenced operation 1853 ( three years prior to the GTR ( now the CN Kingston Sub.) completion)  as the Cobourg & Peterborough Railway (C&P). The 2 mile causeway and bridge over Rice Lake was problematic and by 1866 the railway was re-routed east of the Lake and renamed the Cobourg Peterborough and Marmora Railway (CPM) 


    The industrial tracks on the north side of the Kingston Subdivision were known as the Cobourg Yard, now known as Cobourg.

  1. Hey it’s the infamous 77 Impala.

  2. Nice. Lots to look at.

  3. Nice overall view of what it used to be like around the station. So many places had stock pens and ramps….if you see any out there now they are but decay in the weeds.
