Variations on a theme

Variations on a theme: 39 years ago today on a misty morning just like this the eastbound Aberdeen Turn, accelerates out of Galt, Ont., with five count 'em, five  SW1200s. OK, accelerate might be a bit of an exaggeration, but the pups are giving it all they've got after stopping at Galt to make a lift. The slight upgrade east of Killean is nothing compared to the climb they'll make up the Niagara Escarpment on the return trip from Hamilton. Nevertheless, the sound here was pure magic.

Five — count 'em, five — SW1200s depart Galt, Ont. with the eastbound Aberdeen Turn On August 3, 1975.
