Pushing 5 F units

Subject

Steam Locomotive

Description

Five "F" units are shoved from Windsor Yard towards the clutches of an electric motor at the Detroit River tunnel, enroute to the U.S. side for service. The impetus is provided by a 2-8-2 of the H-7 class, one of a series of sixty built by Alco in 1912-13 and placed in service on both the American and Canadian divisions of the Michigan Central. Fifty slightly larger H-7s in the 1950 series were provided by Alco for the Big Four in 1920.
