The lack of wide angle locations in Niagara makes shooting westbounds very difficult. So with that, I headed to Bayview. I missed the first two leaser power moves through Niagara, so it was nice to get this one. With GECX Tier 4 leasers had arrived on NS C93 from Buffalo yesterday. Today's 422, in charge of them, is feeling the holiday effects with no automotive traffic, which often makes up nearly half of 422's train. A lack of mixed traffic meant this train was somewhere around 20-30 cars long. The lashup includes CN 2949, 2839, 2863, GECX 2029, 2041, 2037, 2039. 

Power short CN should hold on to these for a bit while the order of 200 new AC GEVO's take place. Part of the reason for the order is CN supposedly anticipating increased crude shipments, so maybe the leasers will stay even longer. Time will tell.

Seven locomotives is a lot to fit in one shot, and not many locations offer wide angle opportunities of such. Thankfully the triple track expansion of Bayview over a decade ago allowed for this. Further changes at Bayview, such as the new signal tower on the left indicate further track changes occurring in relation to Metrolinx expanding GO train service in the Hamilton area.
