Throwback Thursday - Modern ETR Van

Essex Terminal Railway 1600 was photographed on September 16, 2004 at Lincoln Avenue in Windsor, Ontario.

Essex Terminal Railway 1600 was a relatively modern van of obvious CP heritage.  It was assembled in 1979 by CP Angus Shops as CP434638, and acquired by ETR in 1990.  In 2014 it was transferred to Waterloo Central Railway as their number 1042.  Essex Terminal had a second example of this type of caboose, and it followed a similar career trajectory, specifically from CP 434530 to ETR 1610 to WCR 1040.
