I know this is stretching the list's subject coverage but I'm curious. 
Pray tell, what RR was operating steam in Smith Falls ONT in 1965?

Thank you for your additional photos!  I am currently in Japan on =
business, but when I return I plan on ordering copies of the four photos 
received.  As a teenager in 1965, I spent some time in Smiths Falls, ONT 
hanging around the yard there.  I was able to enjoy an afternoon in the 
cab of a steam switcher shunting cars around the yard.  It was =
interesting that they could just throw the engine into reverse without =
coming to a full stop; the freight car(s) continuing on down the siding. 
  Conversations did not include any favorable comments regarding diesels!
