I am standing about where "CNR Finnegan" sign once stood - CP Wolverton-Kitchener TK22 has arrived into yard limits on the CPR Waterloo sub. Based on the incoming traffic seen they seem to have ran the entire Waterloo sub - scrap loads from Triple Metal , interchange cars from GEXR and loaded Toyota Autoracks from Hagey. 25+ years ago two mainlines ran through this spot - CNR at right (see far back - it's still there, crossover is the end of CNR/GEXR Fergus spur) and Grand River Railway at left. Recent construction of this underpass has made this vantage possible.
At left is the Babcock and Wilcox plant and their spur - you can make out their Caboose and some ancient (riveted construction) cars used for in-plant switching. This the same facility that large dimensionals were shipped out of and documented by fellow rp.ca photographers.

Caption: I am standing about where "CNR Finnegan" sign once stood - CP Wolverton-Hagey turn TK22 has arrived into the non OCS CPR Waterloo sub. Based on the outgoing traffic seen they seem to have ran the entire Waterloo sub (Kitchener turn) - scrap loads from Triple Metal , interchange cars from GEXR and loaded Toyota Autoracks from Hagey. 25+ years ago two mainlines ran through this spot - CNR at right (see far back - it's still there, crossover is the end of leased CNR/GEXR Fergus spur) and Grand River Railway at left. Recent construction of this underpass has made this vantage possible.

At left is the Babcock and Wilcox plant and their spur - you can make out their Caboose and some ancient (riveted construction) cars used for in-plant switching (It is believed some of these flatcars are old Steam engine Tenders). This the same facility that large dimensionals were shipped out of and documented fall 2013 (Search Babcock Wilcox) by fellow rp.ca photographers.

  1. I would have not recognized this location if it wasn’t for the commentary. This is behind Babs?? Wow.

  2. Great shot Stephen, I’ve been wondering what this location looked like currently. Interesting the cardboard scrap protectors taped to 2255′s plow (2253 here in London has them also); guess CP want’s to keep them pristine!
