This train has been a hit and miss over the past four years I've tried to see it. For the second day in a row though, CN 232 ran because of particularly heavy traffic on CN 422. This would be first decently lit picture I'd get of it. For power is BCOL 4613, a very good choice for solo power on an autorack train in my opinion. 51 empty autoracks are in tow, which should be feathers for this 4400hp unit. It is seen here passing the Fourth Avenue underpass on the outskirts of St. Catharines. This train is bound for the Oakville Ford plant. An afternoon westbound is a good touch for railfanning in Niagara, as it hasn't been commonplace in about eight years when CN 331 ran in the early afternoon. Since then, every freight that passes through comes in dark lighting or when it's backlit. Of course, with the exception of the as required CN 232 which normally is an afternoon westbound, but runs very inconsistently.

  1. Great catch Daniel!

  2. If you are off today there is another 232 running. It was ordered out of Buffalo for 930am.
