A very interesting photo.
ATMM placed by an obsessive-compulsive demolition engineer?????A very interesting photo.
Since I don't have any references about this particular vehicle, does the book explain what those 10 large circular objects on the exterior armor plate are?
That is a photo of a reproduction trolley built by the Levisham Historical Re-enactment Group in 2013. The lower hull was made with plywood on a flat wagon railcar, according to Armored Trains, by Paul Malmassari.
That is my take as well. I took my book to hand, but there is no special mention about these.
Shortly afterwards (referring to the invasion of the Aleutians) mobile defence for the line of the Canadian National Railways along the Skeena between Terrace and Prince Rupert was provided in the form of an armoured train. The train, mounting two 75-mm. guns, four Bofors and two searchlights, had accommodation for artillerymen to man the guns plus an infantry company. It made its first trip between Terrace and Prince Rupert on 29 July, and during the rest of the summer it covered the 90 miles between the two places almost every day.
