Throwback Thursday- CASCO Veteran


CSTX 60 was sitting in the spur leading to the CASCO plant in the southern part of London, Ontario.
By Peter Mumby.

London’s CASCO (Canada Starch Company) plant is located in the south end of the city off the CN Talbot subdivision.  Cars for this plant generally accumulated in the yard at London East, making it easy for me to acquire a variety of photos for my freight car albums.  Early cars, such as the example presented today, carried the Canada Starch name along with CSTX reporting marks.  Later cars bore the CASCO logo along with the reporting marks of various lease companies.  CSTX 60 was built in October of 1965, and was maintained by Procor.
This car was photographed on December 29, 1993.
