Through the late 1970s and into the 1980s/90s we lived in Chatham, and later Brights Grove. But we still had family, and friends, in the Burlington/Hamilton region. So if time warranted a pleasant day at trackside, I took full advantage of it. If memory serves, this was called the INTERNATIONAL, train 85 I believe.
A single F40PH has 9 cars in tow ( 8 Amfleets and a ?? Superliner) as he makes his way past the Inksetter Road iron bridge while headed for Chicago. A shame this train is no longer a through connection.

  1. Great catch! That’s a heritage coach tucked in between the amfleets- not a Superliner. Many of those cars eventually went to VIA and became HEP-2 equipment.

  2. Wow has this shot ever grown in

  3. Ah the old Bonham bridge, I can see my grandfather didn’t start to plant any trees on our land by this date.
