  1. The 676 and 725 were built at GMD London, I presume to avoid payment of customs duties.

  2. In the spring of 1965 when I was 6 years old, my mother ‘made us’ pick wild strawberries near the west end of the rail yard. I was very focused on what I was doing and my back was facing the tracks. (We were a safe distance from them.) Without notice a pair of these F units came along. The engineer took great delight in blowing the horn just as he was even with us. I know…because I saw the smile on his face as I was running full steam back to the car.

  3. It’s so hard to believe how much ran through Fort Erie at one time! Amazing shot.
