Nice looking afternoon back at the end of October 1979 as CP 8730, an RS-18, works a cut of cars at the Canada Cement (Lafarge)siding at Zorra Station. Pity the station has been gone more than 30 years. It made a nice prop for smokey MLW images back in the day...........

  1. Thanks for the info guys, I am familiar with insulbrick. I labor for a brick crew, and things like that catch my eye.

  2. Ralph…everything around there used to be covered in grayish quarry dust. Probably the reason the “brick” looks darker on the back is the fact that wall is facing the NW, and wind/rain has ‘washed’ the wall somewhat compared to the rest of the building.

  3. Great photo Arnold. Almost wouldn’t recognize it then, having seen it in the present.

    By the way….got a shovel? :D

  4. The brick is not real. It’s similar to an asphalt shingle on a fiberboard sheathing. It was commonly used to cover old wood siding. One of the product names was “Insulbrick”. The colour differential would be from dust from the nearby quarry.

  5. looks like the masons used whatever brick they had on hand to build this structure.. red in the back and brown in the front, am I seeing this right?

  6. Very nice, Arnold. The Zorra station was attractive and a great trackside prop. The only props along the rails today are tall weeds, thickets of trees, dilapidated structures and code lines. Longing for the days of old.

  7. Thanks, guys. Years ago along the railroad there was fun to be had for photographers almost everywhere..

  8. Great photo. Those were the days….

  9. Excellent composition Arnold. :-)
