After having completed its weekly switching assignments on the Torbram Lead near the Bramalea Business Park, CN 559 is now making its way back to the CN Mainline near Bramalea GO and from there they will throttle up and head to Malport Yard. In this scene they are running parallel down bustling Steels Ave and if you look closely beyond the traffic lights up ahead, you can note that the road goes up and over an overpass and underneath the overpass is where the busy CN Halton Sub lies. We are also very close to Bramalea GO as the GO Station stands exactly on the south side of the Steels Ave overpass and if you look to the south side of Steels near the overpass, you can catch a little glimpse of the GO Station parking lot which was full as usual on a weekday. Time was 13:32

  1. Nicely composed Graydon.

  2. Thanks Jay! Yup, knew you’d like it! One of my favorite spots.

  3. Yeah, this is a great shot. Much better to show more surroundings than just shooting the engine.

  4. Great shot Graydon! @awmooney: I totally agree. This shot screams GTA.
