I'm disappointed my notes went a.w.o.l.on this image.  Anyway, CN 3120 leads westbound to a stop at Burlington West on a late afternoon in June. The crowds of passengers (yes, it really was that busy) makes me think this is the 'dinner hour' train as I used to call it; which would make it #75 around 1700 hrs. Burlington West was such a busy place back then. Not only with people but the pigeons have decorated the roof quite a bit as well.
Interesting to note a steam genny in old CN paint behind the RS-18s, and on the right, an classic example of a road-lemon back then, a Ford Pinto. Unforgettable, those things..........

  1. And beside the Pinto a Maverick which were bigger but not much better.
