Last train: I was away the week before and knew I had no chance in hell at getting the last OBRY run on the Friday. But when I got home I learned the train was delayed a day... and of course I booked it Saturday to Streetsville to get a couple photos of the last train. I had had an interest in this bridge for some time but never scoped it out - and thankfully I had the time to compose something that turned out rather nice - luck was also on my side as the sun came out at the last minute just as Steve Bradley and Steve Thomas, crew for the train, crossed over the Credit River and into my frame.
I would also learn that the former Toronto Suburban Railway (to Guelph, abandoned 1930's) right of way and diamond with the CPR (CVR) Branches was just behind me. The TSR ROW basically was within feet of the river on other side of the railway bridge on the left (west) side. There isn't much evidence left of the TSR But some does exist at this spot, it's one of the few undeveloped portions of land in the sprawling Mississauga area.

Cheers to the Cando boys and thanks for the great memories.
