It was a cold and cloudy Saturday at the end of November 1968, and John Woodworth, Mike Ondecker, and I had driven to London, Ontario from Akron, Ohio. We had heard that there were CLC C-Liners in a scrap yard there. Much to our surprise there was nobody to ask for permission, so I took my photos, and we left. These three CN Vans standing alone by themselves and awaiting the scrapper's torch still provide a haunting memory to me. 
At a later date I might post some other photos taken there on that day.
As I was new to slide photography this isn't my best quality, but it certainly brings back memories.
