I love gritty industrial scenes and this surely fits the bill. Standing a bit back from the usual spot you can fit a lot into the photo. The train is Y120, it's 2 PM and they are almost done for the day, the crew is  shoving a cut of plastics cars into "lower yard" a two (three incl the main) track yard north of Mile 71 where loads for Entropex were stored. Said plastics cars were unloaded at the shed track veering to the right of the station, but that ended in 2016 when Entropex closed. The "depot" as the Sarnia employees called the Station (using American lingo) was built in 1929 and believe it or not, Streetcars ran to here until 1931. Behind and surrounding it all is Imperial Oil's Sarnia refinery. You'll get spoken to if you linger around here too long and they do notice people with cameras, so get your shot and get out :) 63 miles to the south is of course Blenheim.
