Schnabel car HEPX 200 has been in service for many years, moving heavy and oversize loads for Ontario Hydro and its successors. 
In this picture from 1992 it is lettered for Ontario Hydro with (looks-like) faded red paint, different from the orange Hydro One colour scheme it wears now. Another difference from recent pictures on RP.ca is that this load labelled "Lambton T.G.S." is carried on a cradle joining the car ends, rather than having the load slung between  the two ends of the Schnabel car.
From adjacent images, it appears that this train is eastbound at London Jct, branching off the Dundas Sub onto the Guelph sub. Other frames from the film with same date show GP9rm units CN 7029 (leading long hood forward) and CN 7039 - I believe they powered this train. The caboose is CN 78122.
