Throwback Thursday - YDHR Number 3612

On July 26, 2002, YDHR 3612 is getting ready to haul its next load of passengers from Uxbridge to Stouffville.
By Peter Mumby.

Located northeast of Toronto, the York Durham Heritage Railway operated a tourist train between the municipalities of Uxbridge and Stouffville.  Locomotives and rolling stock were kept in a small yard adjacent to the group's station/office building in Uxbridge.  In today's photo RS11 3612 is in the process of running around its train in preparation for the next run to Stouffville.  An Alco product of September 1956, the unit was built as DWP 3612.

On May 21 of 2022 a tornado struck Uxbridge, causing some $750,000 in damage to the station and nearby rolling stock.  As of this writing, the operation remains closed until further notice.
