Leased Boston & Maine GP7 1569 with CP 8149 on eastbound train First 50 at Guelph Jct. in approx. April 1974. Photos of leased power displaying green flags are not all that common.  The water tower is still standing and the Goderich yard is full of cars. There are no tracks yet to store GO equipment and no enginehouse for OSR to use. The tracks in the immediate foreground are the associated connecting tracks for the Hamilton Sub. and the various yard tracks, where fans have stood for decades. Green flags, under the older Uniform Code of Operating Rules, indicated that there was (at least) another Section of this timetable train to be operated.

  1. One trip in 1974 on 916 out of Windsor, we had (if I recall) B&M 1567 (in ‘Minuteman’ scheme), PECO RS-27 900 (or 901) and an FA-2. No green flags though..

    I’m enjoying these pics Bruce..they take me back to the start of my CP career.
