Throwback Thursday - Ford Auto Parts
BN(SF) 9574 South is just crossing Bathurst St in London, Ontario on the CN Talbot Subdivision. The cars of the train are stretched out along Walkers Siding, which leads off the Dundas Subdivision at London Junction. Together with PRR 3412, the 9574 is powering Norfolk Southern train number 327 and its consist of auto parts cars towards the St Thomas Ford plant. Standard power for this train and its eastbound counterpart, number 328, was a pair of black six axle GE units, but it was the occasional splash of foreign colour that kept me on the lookout for the NS trains.
