Doubleheaded freight Mimico yard to Bronte

February 19, 2023

Thank you for all the comments, suggestions and what-not after watching the second video in the Steam Through Port Credit series. Also, special thanks to Doug Hately and Ron Guenther for assistance with this next video. The third video is now up, and I invite you to watch it. In this one, we follow a couple of 6300-series Northerns from Mimico yard to Bronte. They are heading westbound freight manifest 495 to Sarnia. Photography is by my late friend Pete McLachlan, with whom you are familiar through numerous of my books:

Our third preview video (above) follows a doubleheaded freight behind two 6300-series Northerns from Mimico yard to Bronte on Friday, September 5, 1958.
