The power for the CN rail salvage train is viewed tied down for the night at Line 60, which was the first crossing west of Palmerston on the CN Newton Subdivision. The crew had uncoupled from the rail train several miles back and pulled the power up to the crossing where they would be picked-up and driven back to Stratford. The following day, CN GP9RM's 4115 and 4140 would return to the rail train cars and continue the assignment of taking-up the line towards Listowel. During April 1996, CN had removed the last sections of the Newton and Owen Sound Subdivisions that remained between Harriston and Stratford.
