A pair of clean "Big Alco" MLW M630's CP 4571 (multimark) and CP 4562 (red & stripes) lead a CP freight train round a curve in harsh-looking winter conditions on 24 January 1992. I believe the photographer was close to his home in London ON, considering the weather, and my other images by him. Adjacent frames show a grade crossing. 
His camera date stamp feature imprinted the film, so date should be exact.

  1. After checking with maps and streetview, I am confident that this photo shows an eastbound train approached Maitland Street grade crossing in London ON. It will reach CP’s Quebec Street Yard about 0.4 miles (3 grade crossings) ahead.

  2. Almost exactly 27 years after the photo date, I scanned the negative, touched up the image, wrote a caption and submitted to RPca. Southern Ontario was having a fairly easy winter into first part of January 2019, but experiencing plenty of snow and cold in the second half.
