WB CP Freight Calgary 1958
Author: px320

A westbound CP freight highballs out of town while an eastbound waits to pass through the passenger station on the way to Aylth.

Note: the near new TH&B box car next to the outside braced door & a half box car. CP was still running these cars from the 20s and 30s with K-brake. Note the small white placard on the door. It says not for interchange south of the border.

That's a sweet photo! Love the factory fresh GP9 and the freight cars.

Thanks for the comments. The original slide is an Anscochrome which has gone red. Thanks to Photoshop I was able to recover a reasonable image.
