CP 246 descends the Hamilton Sub towards Hamilton with two GEs numbered 8524 and 8143, and a GP38 No. 3045 to be dropped for the Hamilton local job. I wanted to get some trains on my birthday, even though in a few days from this shot, the ACU rush would begin. CP 246 is a great train for its reliability, but lighting, not so great. Since it's typically an early afternoon train into Hamilton, high sun makes for challenging photography. So, I took advantage of the surrounding landscape to create a naturalistic scene.
