In May 1970, the NMRA Niagara Division had their convention in Chatham Ontario. Some attendees took the opportunity to photograph an eastbound CP freight from the vantage point of one of the signals on the line - a railfan practice that some often did back in the day, but that would be very much frowned upon in present times.

Foreign-road boxcars mixed in the CP train include those for Illinois Central (both in modern orange, and older "Mainline of Mid-America" liveries) and the Evergreen Freight Car Corporation.
