I had tried this angle for the first time a few days prior, and thought it was interesting enough to try again when there wasn't ubiquitous GE power leading. With an SD40-2 was a leading a CWR south down the Hamilton Sub, I figured I'd give it a go.  Stephen Host shot this train the day before in Campbellville (shot here) and Bill Purdy shot it the same day as me at Newman Road (shot here). I later found out that Stephen Host also did a similar shot to this back in 2013 (shot here).

  1. James, nice catch. Lots of things go on in Hamilton that make you go hmm – that church was really beautiful and I think corrupt/sly developers horned in on it to essentially eliminate what should have been a heritage asset from the City’s fine inventory. Par for the course for Hamilton though, development at all costs , corrupt or not is the norm there.

  2. One thing I wish I had noted in the caption – in contrast with Steve’s 2013 image, you will notice only the front of the church remains. The bulk of it was torn down for a condo development, but the front was kept for heritage preservation purposes and was going to be integrated into the development. However, I believe that developer declared bankruptcy. The project has since been resurrected with a new developer https://www.thespec.com/news-story/9186655-new-owners-get-city-green-light-to-add-a-31-storey-condo-tower-to-james-street-baptist-ruin/
