CP RS-23s

Here's an eBay purchase for you to see... three Canadian Pacific Railway RS-23 units with a transfer freight in CN's Island Yard in Saint John. This photo dates from July 1975. The photo quality isn't the best but I like the material. I'm still trying to figure out exactly where this was taken.

Note the lanterns on top of the switch stands in the foreground! This must have been one of the last years the railways did that.

That looks like the little bridge behind Rothesay Ave at Mile 84.6, I think it is, right before the spur track off to Courtnay Bay.
