Throwback Thursday - Fuel for Thought

CN 390 is getting a fuel top-up at the east end of the London yard on March 21, 2006.

Perhaps today's photo will provide the inspiration for one or two of you to set up a little refuelling vignette on your layout.  CN 5746 East (#390) has stopped on the south main of the Dundas Subdivision at CN Highbury in London to take on some much-needed fuel.  Presumably the crew called ahead to the London yard office to make arrangements, because the tank truck has made the trip from Dowler-Karn Fuels in St. Thomas.  Dowler-Karn is a major supplier of fuel in this part of Southwestern Ontario.  As an aside, the head office in St. Thomas is also the location of the Dowler-Karn Museum, home to a large collection of vintage fuel pumps, signs, oil cans, and vehicles.  Check it out if you are in the area!
