Powered by 3 GP9's, a train of mostly scrap metal loads in gondolas is climbing the grade from Hamilton Stuart St Yard, timetable eastbound on CN's Oakville Sub (compass north). It looks like traffic for Lake Erie Steel at Nanticoke, in which case it will switch onto to the "Cowpath" just ahead to head west on the Dundas Sub. 
Note there are cabooses at both ends of the train, and middle loco CN 4514 has fabricated winterization covers, suitable for snowplow service.
