CN local has just worked Merritton's small yard and is heading back to Niagara Falls in this early March view. The mucky snow is melting away and the scenery can only get better. CN 4529 leads sister 4595 eastward over the Welland Canals Parkway and the canal itself. Chimney and water tower in the far background are part of the Glendale GM plant.

  1. So, Docta; you see, if you have read my whining on this site, how the world is changing. It is not as friendly any more. Everybody is leery of everybody. Being nice still counts, but one does not experience near as much as we once did. Thats progress? Oh well. :o )

  2. Interesting story about this bridge…my grandfather used to work at GM and used to cross this bridge every single morning. The Seaway guys would wait a couple minutes if he wasn’t across and they had to put up the bridge. That was back in the 60′s and 70′s. Now you can’t even look at the bridge without Seaway going ballistic

  3. Thanks. I’ll check it out come winter. :o )

  4. I was up there last week just for a walk and it’s weedy and there’s fences. Not a good shot anymore.

  5. I don’t know how it looks up there now, Docta; after all, there are no locals (I know of) that will fit in such a tight shot these days. And the fences………..yeah, I have seen them while driving along but have no longer ‘explored’. Perhaps I should. Thanks.

  6. Interesting to see it without the pathway too. I spend lots of time on the trail

  7. Great photo! I used to shoot trains here all the time when i was just starting railfanning. Back before Seaway threw up all the fences

  8. Interesting photo Arnold…my uncle used to work at GM for 25 plus years….never knew it’s location within St. Kitts. Your photo puts a landmark direction wise. We’ll done. These engines too are the ones I remember at 3 yrs. old…when I first could remember trains.
