When I was at that scrapyard in November 1968, there were still CFA 16-4's along with one or two steam locomotives and at least one electric freight motor. How sad it was. Thanks for the memories. Bob

The missing dynamic brake hatch on the near unit, may have been taken by CN to construct a stationary load-test box, for evaluating shopped locomotives electrical output. I've seen such devices at CN's Spadina engine terminal in Toronto, (with the little triangular windows intact,) and similar devices made from EMD d/b hatches on many other roads. I assume these units are in London, GMD's hometown, as trade-ins on new power.

I've had a blast looking at some of your other 1960s shots... but this is the most surprising to me. Too bad those old gals only got to be teenagers (and young ones at that). Thanks for sharing.
