has a tender off another 2800!

Christmas Eve Thursday, December 24, 1953 No. 629 (The Bullet) was changed from a Dayliner to conventional equipment totalling twelve cars including two RDC's. 2816 hauled that train carrying 969 passengers. Departing Toronto at 3.55 p.m. the heavy weight of the train (it would have been assisted by another passenger engine 60 miles to Orrs Lake) and the high volume of passengers all combined to make it one hour and fifty minutes late arriving at Detroit. The connection through to Chicago was still made due to a three hour and twenty minute layover departing 11.40 p.m. Public time table 1954.
