Interesting view of the small terminal in Maniwaki, Quebec with 2218 waiting to be turned for the trip back to Ottawa in passenger service. You can see the wooden passenger cars on its left. A D-10 is in the distance in front of the little shop, perhaps awaiting coaling from the ancient coaling contraption. The flat cars were for log loading to head south.
