CNR 1982 Bayview GO Trains and a 1961 Timetable

The photos of this post show some of the wide variety of GO Transit equipment operating through Bayview Jct, Ontario in July 1982. 

After the photos, an employee timetable from 1961 shows the traffic on the Oakville Sub through Bayview in 1961 - just after the end of steam and before the birth of GO Transit.

A GP40-2 and a CNR GP40 lead a westbound GO train to Bayview.

In any dispute between a reader and this blogger, 
regarding the description of any locomotive, 
the reader will be adjudicated as being correct.

Probably trailing the same power from the photo above, an eastbound GO train passes.
The lead unit is an FP7A from 1951, equipped with an alternator to provide hotel power to cars.

A control car leads a westbound toward Hamilton. 

An F40PH is pushing the control car as it reaches Bayview.

This Tempo equipment combination was used in southwest Ontario. 
An RS-18 with an alternator added, accelerates east from Bayview.
