CN 4131 leads the "Leamington Flyer" south through Staples, Ontario on a hot July afternoon.  Lots of business on the train today with plenty of CN insulated boxcars for Heinz, a couple covered hoppers for either the Blytheswood or Staples Co-ops.  Up front are an NS and CP boxcar that are probably destined to one of the industries on former C&O in Leamington, more than likely Bennie Lumber.  Sadly nothing remains of railroads in this general area now with the CASO having been lifted this past Spring.
