An ETR job moves stored LPG tanks around their otherwise unused yard and spur tracks in Amherstburg, ON. The track here ends about 500 feet away and is the southern terminus for ETR and is the southern most rail line in Canada. The spur they are coming off of used to serve General Chemical and then Honeywell up until Honeywell closed the plant and tore it down a few years ago. There are hopes that this property will be the future site of a new automotive glass factory but it's not set in stone yet with one of three other cities on the company's shortlist potentially winning the bid instead.
