Nostalgia trip. (for me)  Found a few old B/W images taken at the TH&B Chatham St yard, a location I group  with Aberdeen since they were in such close proximity.
Nice sunny day in early June 1985.  A visit showed TH&B 75 and 403; and behind, CP 4226 and 4246; probably power that would be addressed to the Steel Train which ran to Nanticoke back at the time.
This image was shot with Ilford 120 roll film in a Graphic 2x2 inch film holder mounted on the back of my 4x5 Speed Graphic. This was rather cumbersome. I had been trying it out .... just because, I guess. I also had a 2x3 back for the camera; sharper images but fewer per roll. Best was just using the 4x5(inch)as it was meant to be; a negative that size made for stunningly sharp images.......but I experimented with lesser sizes from time to time....all in the matter of costs.............

  1. And a nw2? In the background!

  2. TH&B 75 was a survivor — known well to me years later as CP 1685 at Port Coquitlam, lasted to 60 years from new when retired 2014-07-01, still with many TH&B details intact. GP9 engine, but still smaller GP7 radiator cores!
