1615 and van 434017 is heading east towards Brookfield on the former CASO, having just crossed Netherby-Townline Road.  The pair were on switching assignment at the former WELLAND TUBES (STELCO) facility that is sandwiched between Ridge Road and the Welland Canal (Welland Bypass). They were likely returning to the TH&B/CPR/CONRAIL Welland Yard.  WELLAND TUBES produced a significant portion of the large diameter pipe used for the Trans Canada pipeline(s), and had a sister plant in Camrose Alberta which is now run by the Russian steelmaker EVRAZ. The rail line here has long since been removed, which would have included an interlocked diamond with the CN Stamford Sub at the bottom end of CN's Southern Yard.  Van 434017 does not appear easy to find on CPR Caboose/Van lists, with most of that series starting with 434018, but clearly it existed. Thanks to Steve H for help cleaning the image up.

  1. Nice capture.
    CP Rail 434017 is shown in the 1991 Trackside Guide ‘Run Through Cabooses – Steel (Upgraded – End Cupola)’: built 1967 by CP Angus, one of a group of 29 (434000-4340028), with nil on roster as of 1991 printing (of the guide).
