A pair of H16-44s sun themselves by the turntable. As relayed to me by an employee, had I turned up the previous day all five remaining C-liners were present. I'm sure everyone has a story about missed opportunities similar to that.

  1. This is lovely.

  2. A very wonderful catch, none the less.

  3. Truly a different world back then; old CLC’s in their twilight, un-rebuilt GP9, active turntable, 40′ boxcar, offset hopper, water tank (albeit empty). So much has changed, even the GP9 has finally left the roster, yet the turn able and the water tank remain!

  4. Great picture James, two FM road switchers , one with Canadian Pacific script and the other without. And love the Geep sticking its nose in the picture. A wonderful reminder of years gone by, thanks for sharing.

  5. That is a very good and informative photograph! For many reasons I never had the chance to photograph one CLC unit in operation. I saw the CLC plant in Kingston during it’s last year in operation. I visited Nelson & Cranbrook and never saw a CLC/FM unit in action. Thank you James for posting a great photograph!
