Caption: Winter of 1975-1976 just hung around like a bad apple. The powers that be finally decided it was time to dig out the plow and keep the railroad fluid. I was told this was the first time in 15 or 17 years that the plow had been activated. I had just been laid off as my position in the Brantford office on Eagle Avenue was abolished (Operator/Clerk). That is why the 2-position train order signal has a bag over it. Call time this day was around 1500 so the light is beginning to die by the time Plow Extra 74 West comes into town. I made an attempt to catch him again near Mt Pleasant but the roads were not conducive to a chase. A couple of weeks later I had secured my new job with C&O, and it would be 8 years before I set foot near TH&B property again.
