ONT 213 passes over the Driftwood River in the small village of Monteith which is part of the Municipality of Iroquois Falls. Behind the camera is the Monteith Correctional Complex. It was a WW2 POW camp and serves as a medium/maximum security prison today for Northeastern Ontario; so don't trespass here! The road bridge in the foreground has been closed to pedestrian and vehicle traffic for some time making it a bit inconvenient for chasing, but we made it work.

  1. I know which paint job I prefer and why they changed from it is a head scratcher. Nice photo Mike.

  2. Great shot, Mike. Love the angle!

  3. Very nice picture Mike ! Great to see the two different paint schemes. Call me old fashioned, but the second unit has the better paint scheme by far ! Thanks for posting.

  4. Thanks guys! I too like the heritage scheme a lot but I do admit their newest scheme is pretty sharp too

  5. Great shot Mike! Must have been a fun chase!
