Sometimes you find a gem online...Here we have TH&B GP9s 402 and 403 riding the turntable at the CPR John Street roundhouse in Toronto in the summer of 1958. I'm a little puzzled about this one--my understanding is that run-through power on the Toronto-Buffalo trains ceased after the TH&B and NYC dieselized in 1954 but CP continued to use steam between Toronto and Hamilton. However, this photo and others show that TH&B power at least handled passenger trains over the Oakville sub. Any insights out there? (Thanks to Steve Host for his help cleaning this one up.)

  1. This power would be dispatched on the night Buffalo No.329 for NY City. I worked at John Street at the time.
