Photos by Chris Martin and Peter Mumby.
Late last fall my friend Chris Martin gave me a slide of CP 911, a hazmat training car that had been sitting in Quebec St. yard in London, Ontario. This got me digging in to the collection to find photos of similar cars that I had seen, also sharing the 911 number. Although not carrying the 911 identifier, I will also present a rubber tired safety vehicle sponsored by Direction 2006, Operation Lifesaver, and Transport Canada.

|CN 911, likely a refinished version of the previous GTW car, was photographed in London on Aug. 04, 2014.|
|Here we see CN 911 again, this time in the company of the DuPont/Norfolk Southern safety train. This 3-car set consists of tank car DUPX 913A, box car DUPX 913B, and caboose DUPX 913 C.|
|This Direction 2006 safety vehicle was in attendance at a safety convention in London on May 08, 2007.|
|Anyone know of a decal set for an HO model of this vehicle?|
|CCPX 911 had been repainted in dark blue by June 14, 2003 when I caught up to it at Walkley Yard in Ottawa. The occasion was an Ottawa Central open house.|
