Photographers make their way to the head end to capture CNR 6167 as she waits to depart Toronto Union Station on a UCRS excursion with almost 700 passengers aboard.  Travelling north via the Bala Sub, the train would pause for three runpasts before taking on coal at Washago.  Returning south via the Newmarket Sub, two more runpasts would be held, followed by a water stop at Allandale as captured by Bill Thomson, before returning to Toronto.  Does anyone recognize anyone in this image?Original Photographer Unknown, Jacob Patterson Collection Slide.

  1. What a time.

  2. Sorry Jacob, can’t identify these gentlemen. Was on board at the moment this picture was taken busy organizing and setting up the lunch counter car for a busy day. The day was cloudy but the runpasts were great ! Thanks for posting John
