The CN Nickel Yard is mostly empty this day.  Curiously enough the power out of Niagara Falls consisted of (2) GP 9's, 4476 and 4533.  The crew choose to separate the two locomotives and leave 4533 parked at the east end of the yard, and use only 4476 for switching operations. They would soon depart with the two covered hoppers for Government Elevator (Port Colborne Grain Terminal) on the south west harbor side. Today the train would be sitting on the Friendship Trail Bike Path that links Port Colborne with Fort Erie on the former CN Dunnville Subdivision (Buffalo, Brantford, & Goderich) line from the mid-1850's.
