D4 449 on the Waltham passenger train flying white extra flags. It is April 1946, and the Interprovincial Bridge was closed due to a fire at the E. B. Eddy plant in Hull at the north end of the bridge. The bridge was closed for repairs for some time, and all trains leaving old Ottawa Union heading to Waltham, Maniwaki, Carleton Place and Montreal via the north shore had to head east to Hurdman on the M&O Subdivision, turn south on the Sussex Street Subdivision to Ellwood, then go around the wye
track and head north into Ottawa West. There they had to reverse position if they were heading to Quebec and head north over the Prince of Wales Bridge. Addy Schwalm/Bruce Chapman Collection
