Throwback Thursday - CP Track Evaluation Car

Track Evaluation Car CP 63 is being prepared to leave the Havelock yard on August 23 1999 for a trip up the Nephton Subdivision.

By Peter Mumby.

Built in 1931 as solarium lounge "Antigua," the subject of today's photo spent time as work car 411255 before being modified into Engineering Services Track Evaluation Car number 63.  It was observed on August 23, 1999 at the east end of the yard at Havelock, Ontario.  Preparations were being made to shove the car up the nearby Nephton Subdivision.  The car was equipped with lights, bell, and a horn to facilitate such a back-up move.
