I started with the CNR in 1956 as a messenger in the car side. Bid quite a few jobs there..back shop..electric shop..Turcot Rdhouse..and diesel shop..all as timekeeper. Ended up at HQ as senior timekeeper.Quit there on Dec 1969, had enuff of the bull.
Thirteen years of my life ..SRB 713372
My dad worked in the back shop as a pipe fitters helper, till steam was killed off then he worked in the maintence shop. Then had a job in CNR stationery store where he retired from.
Nothing as great as hearing the bells and see a steam locomotive being moved over head with the cranes..powerful..good memories they were, or watching locomotives at Turcot in the roundhouse.(Mr. Horseman)
