TH41 is pictured here near Ottawa Street in Hamilton, on the Beach Branch at the interchange. The two hoppers in the foreground are empties for Bunge, and the crew is about to cross Ottawa Street to clear a switch and shove back on the track to tie on a third hopper. They referred to the three as "the three Bunge hoppers", though they'd set off a Nova Chemicals hopper which I thought was odd. My instinct was correct, and I saw CN return the hopper to CP at Adams Yard the very next day, noted in the caption of this shot  here. To see CN working this interchange, I 7posted a shot of them lifting cars here.
