The second train of the morning at the station seemed like any usual CN 421, until after I took this picture. As soon as I lifted the camera off my face, I realized that the 4th unit wasn't a white car, it was actually an engine! I tried to take a going away shot of it, but the early morning back lighting played a big factor in that photo. The 4th unit was AMT 1345, probably going somewhere to get repaired or painted. It was quite a surprise for sure. I said about two minutes before 421 went by "let's pray for something cool"...guess I got my wish.

  1. Thank you! I honestly don’t know CN doesn’t keep up with it. The Grimsby isn’t going to be abandoned, as they’re actually working on fixing up the line for fulltime GO service, but apparently trimming the weeds isn’t part of their plans right now…Trillium Railway trims all their weeds however, so Merriton is pretty clean right now.

  2. Great shot…

    …but what happened to the railways keeping up with their roadbeds? It looks like service has nearly been abandoned and might be discontinued on the Grimsby subdivision due to all the grass and weeds captured in your photo!

  3. Indeed it was! A very great one as well

  4. Hmmmm… a rare Niagara treat!!
