Just love a November sunny Saturday afternoon...


   and a great time to try out my new (for me) used Nikkor 28mm f2.8 lens.
 

   At least twenty eight units (maybe a couple more hidden upper right)


   Of the manufacturer & models in the slide, here's my list, from the left, bottom to top:


   Budd  cars in CN livery: RDC-2; RDC-1; CN MLW S-13; RDC-1; and at top: RDC-4; CN MLW RS-18; 


   GMD FP9A ( CN 6531); F7B; MLW FPB-2u (either 6858 or 6559); MLW FPA-4;  two ONR GMD FP7A ; CN MLW S-13; 
   

   GMD FP9A (VIA 6521); MLW FPB-4; 
 

   MLW FPA-4 (VIA 6774); and three more units likely two FP9A and one FPA-4


   behind the pole: Budd car in VIA livery: RDC-1; and almost hidden, appears to be a MLW RS-18 and a GMD F


   extreme right, appear to be four coupled: two GMD F's; a MLW FPB-4; another GMD F and a MLW RS-18; at top MLW S-13 


   at CN Spadina November 4, 1978 Kodachrome by S.Danko


   Noteworthy: see any 'ditch lights'?

  1. That must have been a “good time Saturday”. A new lens and all this to look at. If that doesn’t say “good old days” I don’t know what would. Really interesting. When it comes to passenger service, something of (almost) everything can be seen. Bet you had fun.

  2. …at that time…you never realized how good those times were…and thank goodness for Kodachrome!
