Classic A-B first generation diesel power in freight service: 25-year old unrebuilt CP FP7 4031 and F7B 4433, in charge of a westbound extra, are stalled climbing the grade up the Niagara Escarpment near Mile 35 of the Galt Subdivision. In the background, the Kelso Conservation Area ski hill looms apparent, with the conservation area's pond in the foreground, and The King's Highway 401 in front of the photographer but not visible.Eventually the train would get on the move again, captured here rolling through Campbellville near Guelph Junction.
