It's been over a year since I took this photo, and didn't think I could make anything of it. I gave it a shot though and found some decent colour actually came out of it. While I had lived next to the CP MacTier Sub for over half a year, this was the second time I had the mobility to head down to the CP tracks with my camera. The first time was unsuccessful, however this time the moment I got to the tracks with my bicycle, a headlight was rounding the corner over the Nottawasaga bridge, just two miles south. I was quickly aware this was CP 119, due to the hoppers up front, and containers behind. For power is CP 8860 and CSX 865 as it crosses 6th Line in Utopia, with no DPU's as usual. I'm glad I took advantage of this opportunity when I did, as CP, like most railroads were very power short at the time. If foreign power didn't show up, you'd have a good chance of being greeted with older EMD power. Besides Union Pacific power, foreign power is once again quite rare on the MacTier Sub. Even with UP power, 420 and 421 are usually the only trains that have them. For the most part though, CP GE's have full control of the MacTier now.
