Since moving back to Brantford in 1998, and up until the time I ceased taking photos, one of my favorite locations was at Mile 18.7 Dundas Subdivision, a.k.a. Powerline Road. But I would also refer to this as ALFORD, since back in the day, it was a named location on the CN predecessor line from Galt to Tillsonburg (before the Lynden Cutoff was built). So on this warm September morning as I sat in my folding chair, I caught the sound of a GE working upgrade at MASSEY and I had hopes that it may turn out to be NS 328. Imagine my surprise when freshly painted B40-8W 579 poked it's nose around the long curve, with GP60M 101 trailing ! And if that wasn't enough, here was the NS Exhibit Car also in the train !
