CP 5626, CP 5703, CP 5590, CP 1103 and CP 6043 lead a southbound train climbing the Niagara escarpment at Vinemount on a beautiful sunny but bitterly cold day.  Always a favourite photo of mine, and notable as it was the last day I saw Reg Button before he passed away.  I was in a hurry to get here for the shot so I didn't stop to talk to him at Kinnear but at least I got to wave goodbye.

  1. Very nice photo and caption Rob.

  2. Great photo! It’s interesting you also caught a control cab set in the lash up. I did the exact same thing at the same spot that summer.

  3. Checking my photos from 2001 it seems I stuck to my travels and didn’t know about hotspots like Bayview yet. By the time I started going there in 2002, everyone was telling me about Reg Button… and his legend grew on me – and it keeps growing.

    A great shot and a great memory. Maybe some day we’ll have a Reg Button shot of this train to look at.

  4. Beautiful image, Sir.
    Nice of you to mention the legendary Reggie.
    You can be sure all of us who knew him certainly miss him.
