This, the day after the infamous Mississauga wreck, a CN RS-18, complete with 'extra flags' is seen coming off the CN Dundas Sub, en route for Hamilton.
I thought it rather unusual for this old MLW 3718 to be leading, trailing units GP40W 9644 and SD40 5068 would make more likely leaders, I suppose; but I enjoyed the opportunity to record this.
For those viewers out of the Ontario area, that is the CP Hamilton Sub line from the GALT sub on the left.

  1. Oops! My initial comment should read trailing unit not training unit.

  2. “double extra”

    I also notice the sectionman building is still there – that burned around what 1991?

  3. I’m rather embarrassed to say I didn’t even see that. :o )

  4. I see the ‘extra’ flags are also flying on the training unit! Advance preparedness for another trip. :-)
