GP7 #73 is in charge of an extra west at Slote Road in Copetown. It was rare to catch anything on the western end of the TH&B until the slab trains to Nanticoke started running.

  1. Every now and again this shot comes up on the main page, and I always click on it. Pretty much my favourite TH&B shot. Ever.

  2. Always Loved the TH&B

  3. Great shot, always sad driving along HWY 99 and seeing the bare road bed, at least it survived as a trail. I wish there were more shots of the Waterford sub. out there.

  4. By this time, Brantford’s industrial base had shrunk dramatically and the Nanticoke Assignment would perform all local switching in Brantford during its four week cycle. During the six week cycle CN operated the train, the TH&B would operate Extra’s as required to protect switching in Brantford and Scotland. This would be one of the Extra’s. The flatcar would be for White Farm Equipment and the South Branch Valley boxcar for Sternson’s.

  5. Thanks all!

  6. I don’t know the answer to that. It was an extremely rare occurrence.

  7. Very nice James! Another one of those shots from a line that use to be – now unfortunately just a trail.

  8. Classic shot James, so much to appreciate about the scene here

  9. he other Copetown – bet many of todays kids don’t know where this is James :) – if it was rare to catch anything other than the steel train – then whay would extras like this also have run? What changed?
