When CP ran extra trains from Toronto to Hamilton they were known as Extra Hams, a designation that I always found humorous because it sounded like something you'd ask a family member to bring for Thanksgiving. Pictured at Desjardins, and about to duck under one of Hamilton's most beautiful bridges are SD40s 5539, 5529 and GP35 5004.
