While visiting Roger Chrysler, we discussed the various freight motors that Inco used on their electrified railway. I’ll put together something about the motors themselves in the future, but in my search for info on them, I discovered this photo.
Arnold Mooney was gracious enough to allow me to use this image here. This is Arnold’s description of the shot: “INCO electric 65T #121 is pictured westbound from the mine with a load of ore for interchange at CP’s Levack station, mile 104 on the Cartier Subdivision. It is my understanding that all the electrics are now off the properties of VALE, formerly known as INCO. Info would be appreciated.”
Aside from showing the Inco motor, Arnold’s shot captures a string of CP’s welded drop-bottom ore cars in use. These are the prototype for the cars I built in my series of posts on this subject.
