CP 140 finally continues its final leg toward its destination of Toronto after being delayed the previous day due to a bridge issue at the Detroit/Windsor border. It was about 08:40 and it was quickly getting hot. I was finally able to properly shoot this pair, which had been circulating the system on trains 235 (June 26), 234 (June 27), and 141 (June 28). My attempt at shooting this pair on train 234 on Saturday, June 27 failed miserably as the train was extremely late and finally proceeded east from Wolverton in the late afternoon, forcing me to ultimately give up. I'm glad I did because I was able to shoot it like crazy this Canada Day morning. If only CP 234 following this train had CP 7023 leading, it would have been a perfect morning. My luck has its limits. This was taken at 9th Line at the Mississauga city limits. Highway 407 is in the background.
