4089 leads 8476 returning to the Falls after running "Van Only" to lift OCS equipment used in track dismantling on the old K&P between Snow Road and Sharbot Lake. The 14.5 miles of track lay unused for years having been abandoned September 1966. Seen here marshalling their train including empties not required.

Brakeman walks back to line switch. Photos taken from Highway 38 overpass with old 120 box camera. .

Changing to a 35 mm camera for this shot in colour.

Leaving Sharbot Lake for the last time!

4089 waits at Glen Tay for eastbound whose headlight can be seen in the distance.

4221 leads Symbol freight 906 eastbound on the Belleville Subdivision.

The original O&Q mainline itself between Glen Tay and Tweed would soon be abandoned
on July 21, 1971 although the track would not be lifted until 1974.
