TH&B Tuesday
Author: hoggerdoug

Another image from Ron Tuff and posted with his permission.  Ron has this labelled as "September 1978, TH&B 57 switching near Aberdeen Yard" (Hamilton, ON). I recall that there was a steel supply / warehouse in behind the Chatham Street roundhouse and figure this is where the image was taken.

Interesting shields on the top grille, I'd never seen that before on a TH&B switcher.

They all had hinged covers on the rad top as well as removable covers on the front fan intake. Not sure if the top ones were removed in warm weather.From what I recall, as the cooling fan worked the flaps on top would open.

Maybe some adventurous (i.e. barking mad) modeller could rig a set that would lift when the unit was throttled up!
