While it may not look like it, this bunk car was still in service and was a home-on-the-road for members of the TH&B wrecking crew.  This coach along with several others were stored 'ready to go' at TH&B's Aberdeen Avenue yard in this mid-1974 photo.

  1. It is remarkable to see any photos of this sort of rolling stock these days. I was first impressed with this photo because I could relate to it. Back on Apr. 4, 1979, I wandered into Hamilton, and down at Stuart St. CN yards were 3 old TH&B coaches; Numbers 75, 73 and 303, looking about like what you pictured. Because they were on CN, I had wondered if they were sold. Probably better I find someone who is a member of the TH&B historical society for my questions, but keep getting the impression these may have been saved. But where?? Anyway, great to visit the past for a moment, if only by photographs!!! THANKS for posting your historical image.

  2. Arnold,
    The majority of these ex-revenue passenger cars that were converted to OCS accommodation ended up facing a scrappers torch or alligator shear. Not sure what happened to these particular TH&B cars but I am sure CP got some use out of them after the merger. The many CN coaches & box cars I lived in during my early railway days are long gone in favour of the new modular housing units and motel lodging.

  3. Where did these old cars ever end up?
