I left this image on the shelf for quite a while because everything was marked on it but the location, for some strange reason. But I am convinced it was shot from Industrial Rd looking north in Smithville. The industrial area has changed, as a new building is going up (expansion of Stanpac, Inc)on the left where that large structure used to be. TH&B 401, 403 and 77 are westward, destination Hamilton; and this is most likely a very late train out of Buffalo, crossing at the Falls. It was rare that I caught a Hamilton-bound train thru this area; they mostly ran at night.

  1. Even then….some things never change! You are correct in your location Arnold. Great photo of a forgotten road….!

  2. I wonder, did the TH&B crews prefer the 400′s leading (long hood forward), or the 70′s (short hood forward)?
