The late day light accentuates the classic GP9 details, as CN local 547 switches out cars on the Glass Lead in Milton. The name of the spur comes from the large glass plant that was served here up until its closure and demolition several years ago. Today the former glass plant site is being redeveloped and there are still a few industries served along the short spur. The brakeman is seen in the process of returning to the cab after flagging a busy crossing, and the train will now head back to the Halton subdivision to complete switching local industries before returning back to Aldershot.
