With the Ontario Southland Railway nearing the end of its run, and the cloudy overcast skies, I decided to venture out and shoot it today. The OSR's path runs in the worst conditions for bright sun as almost all shots will be right back in to it, so the overcast skies helped. A pair of MLW's in RS18u, 181 and RS23, 505, make their way through the village of Arkell past a model of a train standing in the horse yard. We may not be able to see a pair of locomotives built in 1958 and 1959 in these parts for much longer, if ever after next week.
