It was inevitable. In the mid fifties, these two GP-9 locomotives replaced the big Hudson steamers. They were called "Torpedo Geeps" because of the tanks on the roof.

In the background is the TH&B Head Office and station in downtown Hamilton. It still exists today as a GO commuter train station. It is a wonderful example of "Streamline Moderne" a sub-type of Art Deco architecture.
