CP 246 is pictured here on the final stretch to the International Bridge, where it will cross into Buffalo, New York. The well cars in the middle are in storage I believe. The racks to the right are on CN 538, which minutes before had just crossed the International Bridge in the opposite direction, returning from Frontier Yard with 134 cars in tow. They would set a long string of racks off on that track before heading back to Port Rob with a much smaller train.

  1. Spur is what’s left of the Dunnville sub on the Fort Erie side. Former “Fort Erie South”

    Lumber place has been there for some time

  2. With*

  3. Backtracking here… CN does indeed have customers in Fort Erie on the spur, actively serving both a lumber facility and scrap place. The lumber facility is quite active in the winter I’m told soth near nightly switches.

  4. CMI heavy industries has a spur in Stevensville but I don’t know if they use rail. Don’t look like they are the rail using type.

  5. Your comment reminded me that I was meaning to ask if there were any active customers left on the Fort Erie Spur. Does anyone know?

  6. What a sad excuse for the old Fort Erie yard back there on the left as the vegetation takes over.
