Caption: [Editors note: First photos of this rare operation on rp.ca] Early 1971 on Harvest Road, east of Greensville Ontario, I was able to photograph one of the trains on the unique operation of the rock hauls for Canada Cut & Crushed Stone. These trains operated electrically with overhead catenary system, I believe was 600 volts. The trains operated between the pit on Hwy 5 and the crushers located on the edge of the escarpment overlooking Dundas. Loaded trains were run cab first and then shove back empty to the pit.
