A few units at CN Spadina roundhouse
Author: gcm

Against the sun shots but the steam stood out well.

That's what I call special with all of those F Inits.
Thanks for posting a super photo series.

A bunch of steam generators lit on this one. Really adds to the mood.

Used to work for CN Sleeping & Dining at Spadina, and saw all this, being a train fan.

We stocked the diners and got the sleepers ready for the Super Continental, for example -- this included seeing mechanical forces sliding ice blocks under certain cars for air conditioning. Blocks of ice were 2×5 feet!

Diners required a crew of 10 -- Steward (Boss), Chef, First Cook, Second Cook, Third Cook, Pantryman (Dishwasher), and four Waiters.

It was a great working class, muliticultural mix of people on onboard -- one of my fondest memories of the time working out of Spadina Yard.

Thank you for that report from "inside".  Three cooks, four waiters.  Sounds like the Ritz!

Thanks Gary.  Must have missed your 6/1 post.  I can say I've had my ONR "F" unit fix for now - LOL
