    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 ?

      I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure , but I'm not a complete idiot - some bits are still missing

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

          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.
