Fully loaded covered grain hoppers end up off line as the rails snapped like twigs in multiple locations.  Although difficult to see, there are 5 cars involved.  The (2) GP9RM lead locomotives were moved further south across Clarence Street to keep the crossing open, and GP9RM 4102 (barely visible extreme right) was brought in to clear 2 cars that were blocking the Fielden Ave Crossing. The RC 10771 was a 110 Ton unit and was one of the few such cranes stationed in Ontario.   The semaphore in the background was then permanently yellow and always in the raised position shown. It was likely removed when Bridge 20 was taken down a few years later.   Interestingly enough, Trillium who has operated the lines here since 1997 suffered a near identical 5 car derailment on April 3, 2018, almost exactly 24 years to the day.
