Hamilton's New Light Rail?  - If this was Hamilton Light Rail it would surely look at home, but instead this is the end for TTC Hawker-Siddeley H5 5735 as it awaits its turn for scrapping at Future Enterprises. This facility had the following on the property on this day: 5735: 5717, 5786, 5805, 5713, 5607 - (and there may have been a couple more that I missed!)

As of December 2012 you can hardly tell there was ever a scrap yard here - and the company appears to have gone out of business - phone numbers no longer work, and all of the cars mentioned above are of course, long gone.

  1. Funny, they were supposed to go to a light rail project in Lagos, Nigeria. It was all over the news before, but with all the scrapping at Future Enterprises that seems to have fallen through.

    Interesting that most of the underbody components seem to have been removed at this point. The trucks are supposed to be returned to the TTC after scrapping.
