Snapshot - November 2023

A view of 4508 and 4509 lead end at St. Thomas, Ont. Cyril Butcher photo from the Larry Broadbent collection.  
This months snapshot came to me from my friend Andy. This photo I think was taken in the early 1970's at the yard office in St. Thomas, Ont. At that time the yard office housed N&W crew clerk, agent and crew office for both CN and N&W crews. What is interesting about the photo is how weathered the lead ends of these two GR-17's are. 4508 nose shows a lot of the original old green and olive paint. I don't recall seeing these two engines looking like this when I hired on in 1977 so it would have been before then...George Dutka
