Throwback Thursday - Out for a Spin

CP 5410 is all hooked up and pumping air to power the London turntable on October 24, 1993.

By Peter Mumby.  

On October 24, 1993, CP 5410 was taking a spin on the turntable at Quebec St yard in London, Ontario.  As you can see from the hose connections, this device was powered by compressed air taken from the locomotive itself.

On CP the 5400 number series was reserved for SD40 and SD40-2 locomotives purchased on the second hand market.  DRF -30x  5410 was an SD40 built in 1971 by GMD as Quebec North Shore & Labrador 214.  It had been acquired from QNSL in 1985.
