TH&B running eastbound has just crested the hill at Vinemount, as seen in this image taken from the Ridge Rd overpass. Power is TH&B 75, 73, 53 and 57. Sure must be a challenge to find power when they have to throw a couple of switchers into a heavy train like this.  But it was a common practice back then. Photo shot with Woolco negative film on another one of those cruddy winter days.

  1. When two of the switchers were rebuilt m u was added so could be used as shown in this photograph. I think it was the 52 and 57.

  2. Thanks, Bruce. I scribble numbers on my hand when the train goes by so I could have easily misread my “notes”.

  3. The noise from those Geep’s must have been wonderful to hear ! A very nice “moody” picture, evoking many good memories ! Don’t know if the Ridge Rd overpass is still there, but still a great photo location. Thanks for posting, John

  4. The overpass is still there and has been rebuilt, very modern, concrete, very wide shoulders, you can park on it easily :)

    It’s grown in something fierce though, so you can only get head on shots..

    I’ve tried a couple shots over the last few years… but the CP trains go through there quite quickly.
