Larry WilsonI'm from Toronto, living in Dominican Republic. Rode on cn6218 from TO to NF during railfan trip in the 60s. In the cab. Wow! Knew 6167 as well, from Kingston-Belleville railway events of a few years earlier in the 60s. I remember Union Station Toronto being dead empty at morning rush for a few days due a strike. My handle/sig is TrainMaster...stuck in a trainless country in Run-idle. Modeling a little and going to Dan Dawdy's page to read Bryce Lee's news from the old country. Glad to have found your pages in the rail newsgroup! Keep up the good, and high quality, work! LarryMarch 17, 1996
