photoblog image Loading a SNTF Locomotive

Loading a SNTF Locomotive

I took this while down near the Toronto Harbour the other day, there was nothing i could do about that lamp post as this was the best possible angle I coudl find for this image (note the barbed wire along the bottom of the frame!).

This image shows one of seven SNTF locomotives, assembled by General Motors south of Toronto, being loaded onto a huge oceanliner (Jumbo Shipping) in the Toronto Harbour for shipment to Algeria. I just happened to be out on my bike yesterday and in the right place at the right time to see this.

Wait... there's something very wrong with this picture.... Toronto has a Harbour? It's actually used for cargo of any kind? that goes to Algeria? when did this happen? that's not right! you were really in hamilton wern't you?

-VV-
Iain Myrans: No, this is Toronto. It's small but it's still there. It's rare we move this kind of cargo. Mostly all that's left is a container port.
Where is General Motors south of Toronto? Isn't "south of Toronto" just...the Lake? When I think of General Motors I think of Oshawa (east of Toronto), though I guess there are other locations too.
Iain Myrans: Oh, well south-west i suppose, still is south. They have a heavy equipment plant just north of London, Ontario. Don't forget Niagara Region (Canada) is to the south of Toronto accross the lake, it's not all the US over there. : )
