    Interesting to see some of the old trades, pattern shop and foundry, and the machinery, a lot were still used by CP until the 90's, some still are, such as the 'Elephant Foot' and Planers are still used for switch points and frogs out west.
    I think Angus shops closed up in the late 80's, early 90's ?

        Fantastic! I just love steam locomotives. It is a real treat to see some of the steps in their manufacture. Thanks for the link.

        And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
        You will find that it has discrete steps.

          What's an "Elephant Foot"? A forge?

              I liked that so much I"m going to try to capture it and make a dvd of it. I could watch that for hours.
