Busy day at old Fort Erie. Morning fog is lifting, leaving an annoying haze in the air as Chessie 3820 and 4296 arrive from the USA with a short transfer. Not often did they go around the south side of the sprawling CN complex, but on this day they would continue on to namesign Fort Erie South and go in 'the back' way. Not sure of the string of empty cars in the scene as well. No power attached. 
Fort Erie MCRR/TH&B station still looks good. It would not be around much longer.

  1. I wonder if that is the remains of old snow piles. It IS only mid-March. The station came out in 1975, I think.
    The crew hostel, closer to the camera, lasted a couple more years.

  2. To the right of that train…the ground looks freshly leveled. Was the CN station removed years earlier, or was it more recent to the date of your photo?
