  1. I wonder if the stock cars were going to Schneider meats.

  2. This is an amazing image. Thanks Jacob.

  3. Very nice indeed ! A few interesting things, note the slope back tender, requiring more stops for water and no sign of marker lamps or extra (white) flags – guess the old gal stayed strictly within yard limits. Took black & white pictures of sister 0-6-0’s 7441 & 7501 in Kitchener yard summer 1958, there were usually three of them in Kitchener at that time. Thanks for sharing, John
