Protecting the points as nsc ge 45 ton #11 about to cross the Dofasco bayfront lead. Crew use both riding platforms, illegal on any common carrier railway but this is industrial railroading. Keen watchers will note this is well after all sw1001's entered service. The crew was using one until moments before this and hopped into #11 to make this move meaning 4 units are in service when this photo was taken. #11 has lived all its life here

  1. So much better than the SWs. Sigh.

  2. Hopefully it wasn’t headed for the melting pot.

  3. Nice scenery these fellows drive around. Just like being at the park. :-)

  4. Can’t wander here as dofasco security kicks you out. I am on the sidewalk tho

  5. How often does NSC cross this diamond?

  6. How long is a piece of string?

  7. Matthew only when using it for storage. When the paint booth falls behind they can store unoainted things here but again it’s random and infrequent.

    The finished coils wer being pulled out in this move in may

    For months they may not use it at all.

    Ive been going down to Hamilton frequently for 15 years and only seen it three times.

  8. Perhaps they were about to pull out some of the dozens of finished NS coil cars that appeared to be on hold, and stored on that lead, pending the outcome the crash where NSC NS cars were implicated (incorrrectly as it turned out I think). Great photo Stephen! James/FFV.

  9. Hi James/FFV, you are correct. I have another photo to share soon of the other end of that movement.
