Anybody Know Where This Place is?
Author: MartyBernard

Roger Puta shot CN 5531 (SD60F)  and caboose 79736 in March 1980.  What do you make of the load just ahead of ther caboose?

Thanks for the help,
Marty Bernard

Marty,
The lead unit is first 5531, a GP38-2 with spartan cab. As to what's in front of the van, it looks a lot like the framework on CN's orange 86' service flats that were used to carry panel track turnouts, although the examples I've shot don't tower so high. The number series would be 549xx, perhaps. Any other ideas out there?

Fred, do you happen to know where the location of the photos is?   Marty

The pole line narrows it down to somewhere on the Kingston sub.

Nice pair, thanks for the share Marty. I like seeing the crew profiles.  I think it really adds to the shot.

I certainly agree about being able to see the crew.  It is amazing that that kind of detail remains in a 37-year old slide.
