NS&T 130 – Humberstone

In a post earlier this week, I shared an image of NS&T 130 from the collection of photographs, maps and other materials I’ve recently acquired from William Flatt. Here’s another look at this classic interurban:

NS&T 130 - Humberstone Siding

NS&T 130 – Port Colborne. Photographer and date unknown.

My notes for this image say this car is on “the Humberstone siding”. I’m guessing this is either the passing siding at the north end of Port Colborne, or the spur to the Robin Hood flour mill in that town. In any case, the photo was likely taken the same day as the one I shared in my previous post, in which case the 130 is running as a railfan special.

I do like how the two-tone scheme jumps off the green background of a summer’s day in Southern Ontario…

One thought on “NS&T 130 – Humberstone”

  1. I believe that this images shows #130 about to enter Elm Street north bound, after departing from the CN station next to the Dunnville Sub. There was also a curve that left Elm Street (when traveling southbound) which turned west towards the CN freight interchange. As this is more than likely a railfan trip, making a stop at the station seems more likely than heading to the interchange.
