LaSalle Packaging – Hearn Trip: August 28th, 2008

On August 28th, 2008, members of the Windsor Modular Railroad Club were invited to visit the Hearn / LaSalle Packaging plant in Amherstburg Ontario to have an up close and personal look at the facilities three Alco / MLW engines, as well as the railcar unloading facilities.

Members were treated to the smoke and rumble of an old Alco firing up and a short ride down the tracks. We also had the opportunity to open the hood and see what’s inside.

We would like to thank Don Hearn for allowing us to play with his trains!

Here are a couple of photos from that day, taken by Geoff E.:
