The CN 1600 Job backs up on to the tracks leading up to many of Hamiltons finest industries, by the Hamilton Port. Seen leading Long Hood Forward is GTW 5849 being operated by Beltpack, meaning there’s a remote control strapped to the conductors waist, and he can control the movement of the train, and the horn and bell etc.

  1. Cool location and very nice light. Those three have been facing the same way for quite a while. I thought they would’ve spun the 5849 around on the wye at Parkdale by now.
