This pair of ex-CN SW1200RS were the first units I saw RaiLink (Southern Ontario Railway) use to work Hamilton waterfront yard, and this image shows them in their first autumn with RaiLink. 
At the far end of the right-most yard track is RLK 1200, a cabless B-unit switcher. A month earlier I had seen it paired with RLK 1752, switching cars in the yard. 
The roadbed for the tracks that formerly led to the CN/GO/VIA James Street Hamilton Station can be seen in the bottom left. Nowadays tracks, platforms, signals, and lots of poles for GO Transit's West Harbour station are in this area.
