CN 2988 with BCOL 4625, CN 5633, CN 8868  leads train 422 uphill east on the Oakville Sub out of Hamilton toward Aldershot Yard in Burlington.  A couple of miles ahead the train will be cut, the back end tied down, and the front end backed into the yard at Aldershot East to drop and lift railcars. The signals at CN Snake where 422 crossed over to Track 1 can be seen about a mile back. Farthest track is the west yard lead.

  1. Thank you, yes it was taken on March 26, 2018 about 10:38 AM. Set daylight savings time on all my clocks, missed the camera.

  2. Nice shot. Believe this was shot this year, however, not last year!
