CP SW1200RS 8160 handles a short train on the old Lake Erie & Northern line (now the CP Simcoe Sub), as viewed across the Grand River in Brantford. Note the old LE&N car barn in the background. Units 8160, 8161 and 8162 were regulars on the old "CP Electric Lines" (GRR and LE&N) for decades.

When CP abandoned the line in the late 80's, CN acquired small portions of TH&B and LE&N trackage in Brantford in the late 80's, and operated them as part of the Burford Spur. This section survived to service the old SC Johnson & Son plant until the early 2010's.

  1. What a great photo showing all the LE&N structures as they were towards the end of operation. I’ve seen very few photos of CP on the Simcoe Sub. in Brantford. Thanks for posting this photo.

  2. Amazing photo.
