Mount Herbert Spur – 1974 Sidings List

This is copied from the 1974 sidings list I mentioned earlier. “SPINS Number” is the code being assigned in the new numbering program. I have also included two additional columns not listed in the original letter

  •     1988 ETT this town was listed in my copy of the CN Atlantic Region Employee Timetable for 1988
  •     1958 ETT this town is listed in a transcribed copy of the 1958 CN Atlantic Region Employee Timetable – I have copied over the “Car Capacity – Other Tracks” column to help illustrate the siding lengths where listed
Location Present Switch Zone & Track Number Designation SPINS Number 1988 ETT 1958 ETT
Lake Verde H 50 Storage Track H 050 Yes 20 cars
H 52 Public Siding H 052 TT Yes
Mount Albion H 55 Public Siding H 055 TT 13 cars
Hazelbrook H 57 Public Siding H 057 TT 9 cars

I’m really excited to see this. I take it that these sidings were all still in place in 1974. In the late eighties I distinctly remember seeing box cars set out once at Mount Albion at the freight shed. While I haven’t noted Mount Albion in the 1988 ETT column, as it’s not actually listed, the Timetable does include this quote: “Mount Herbert Spur, Mileage 10.0 – Extends 4.6 miles west of main track. Points face south.” so this would take you that aforementioned freight shed.
