It was approaching the 'midnight hour' for railroad activity in downtown Niagara Falls. This, I think, was the last local I ever saw rolling thru here; the track was soon to be lifted as CP was pulling out. CP 8221 is seen just crossing touristy Clifton Hill, alongside Victoria Av, on its transfer run from the CN yard back to CP Montrose. There was 10 years difference between this and the CSX photo (#36718) I posted recently, but it would have been neat to imagine a meet between that CSX 8221 and this CP 8221. I wonder if anything like that ever happened along the line here?

  1. Fantastic, always wanted a shot here.

  2. Frig. I was down here probably the next day on a trip with my GF (now wife). I thought i’d come back for trains. How wrong I was – I had no idea it was being ripped out!

  3. Really like this shot
