A CP Rail GP35 is leading a C424 and an FP7A (probably CP 4075) out of the Trois-Rivieres engine track.  Next it will back down onto the train that the yard switchers have assembled, for the return journey to Montreal.  The coaling tower, long out of use, is in the background.  Looks like I am getting a wave from the brakeman on CP 5020.  
Largest volume of freight traffic here was newsprint paper from the paper mills along the St Maurice River, especially those in Trois-Rivieres and Cap-de-la-Madeleine. 
The coal tower, roundhouse, some of the tracks, and the adjacent east-side neighbourhood were cleared to make room for Quebec Autoroute 40.  The passenger station remains but has been re-purposed.  CP has left town; their Montreal to Quebec north shore route is now operated by the Quebec-Gatineau Railway.
