  1. The most interestng thing aboutn this shot to me, is the pups (8100s) on the eastbound with a bunch of autoparts cars. Those units were usually on the east pickup No. 50 which would have a bunch of manfiest freight normally. The traffic looks like 74′s freight from Windsor, which is a through train. It is possible that the “pups” off the west London pickup of the night before that were on hand at Quebec St, were put on the train at Quebec St. to get them back to Toronto.
