I certainly don't spend the time I used to in Milton anymore, but time rolls on. It is convenient that the large "S" curve in the north end of town allows for decent shots of eastbounds in the morning unlike most of the line between north Burlington and Georgetown. I haven't shot many of the GECX Tier-4's CN has over the years so any opportunity is a good one, especially considering that they are gradually being upgraded and repainted. Here an eastbound is just about to exit the grade separation in Milton as it crosses Regional Road 25 and enters the double track at Milbase.

  1. Milton isn’t the easiest spot for photos on CN for sure. The grade separation wrecks most shots. I prefer still heading out to the countryside

  2. I went here as well, but gave up on the lack of scenery. But obviously by looking at this image, I should have looked around a bit more.

    Very nice.

  3. Nice Marcus. I’ve always liked this spot too. Stopped over here after work quite a bit back in 2016. There were usually 1-2 westbounds for my delight.
