A westbound freight with CN 6189, a 4-8-4 Northern, is assisted by a relatively newer GP9 4506 as they pass by Dundas Station in 1958, with the Niagara Escarpment looming in the background. Another sister GP9 not more than a few years old, 4503, rests on the tracks by the station.

  1. I don’t think anything could be better than this.

  2. This portrays the steam + diesel transition era perfectly! Great photo!

  3. Beautiful shot, if I only had a time machine :)

  4. Excellent and very historic photo. I guess that is 10 to 15 years before Mooney was shooting in this area.
