  1. You have some excellent scenes of steam (Canadian Pacific Royal Hudson 2855) and of the riverfront yard of Canadian National Railways along the Detroit River, all familiar to me since I was a child in Windsor, Ontario. Very, very enjoyable. Thanks, Tom! I used to ride the old Sandwich, Windsor & Amherstburg buses on the higher ground above the CNR yard (on my knees so I could see out the windows!) and memorized everything I saw below. Later, as a youth, I often hung out at the old Grand Trunk/CNR station hoping to get an invitation up to see the cab of their great 4-8-4 Northerns poised to take off to London and Toronto. I succeeded several times!
