Kinnear and Aberdeen yards were long time favourite yards for me in my early days. Unfortunately I missed out on the TH&B by several years but managed to catch CP’s surviving MLW’s assigned there late in their lives. By the time CP’s GP9U’s took over all assignments all power was assigned to Kinnear. Trio’s of GP9’s handled all local work in Hamilton as well as runs to Aberdeen, Waterdown and all work on the belt line. Unfortunately today they have all vanished like the MLW’s. On this autumn day a trio of Geeps’s have just tied down a Kinnear after a run to Aberdeen under light fog, returning with three empty steel coil cars.
