The operator at CP's Guelph Junction station stands at the ready, train order hoop in hand, to hoop up on orders to westbound CP #501 as it approaches the station during a snowstorm. This exemplifies the challenges operators had to deal with sometimes, passing on train orders in all types of weather in all seasons.

  1. Once the head end was by, the snow would fly around everywhere. Getting the tail end to catch the hoop was a minor miracle.

  2. Fantastic image, Bill.

  3. Great shot! What I’d give to have that station back again :(

  4. Well said, and a great capture Bill.
