Just after 7am on a peaceful Friday morning finds CCGX 4015 working the north end of Orangeville Yard. In this scene the unit has paused right in the center of Townlne rd as the conductor (who is 2 hoppers behind) flips the switch to the spur that serves the Clorox Company of Canada Plant. After they drop their 2 hoppers off they will run around to the south end of the yard, couple onto their train and head south to Mississauga.  This will most likely be CANDOs last run ever on the line as Trulliums Start date to operating the line is said to be July 1 2018.

  1. Thank you Steve! Yup resonatley the moderators on here asked me to try shooting the train at different angles so seeing Townline road empty and the unit almost large enough to measure the length of the crossing, I knew I had to take advantage here!
    I sure had fun chasing you guys yesterday and today!

  2. Great shot !! It really high-lights the neat Cando paint scheme. Glad you captured what you did.

  3. Excellent

  4. Thank you! Your historical images are amazing as well! It’s so nice to look back and see how much some of these railways/locations have changed over the last few decades.

  5. Nice to-be historical image here. Fine work !!
