Burlington (Freeman) station was a hard place to shoot when the sun was out. Unless you happened upon the place after 5 PM or so. What is interesting to me about this shot is not so much the power, but the fact there are 2 dozen people hanging around; most to get on, a few perhaps waiting a friend to arrive. Mulroney's chopping of VIA in 1990 plus a host of other anti-VIA changes that were presented to us as "pro"-VIA have pretty well killed scenes like this, save for in a few scattered localities.  Anyway, CN 3103 leads the eastbound in this "pre-VIA" image. This locomotive and the rest of the others in the RS-18 grouping from 3100-3129 were gone from the roster by 1992.
