10:24am on a rather cool Friday morning in late September finds GMTX 333 making yet one more run south as usual to the CP Galt Sub in Mississauga from Orangeville to interchange freight with CP. Trailing the mp15ac today were 4 empty covered hoppers from Orangeville (but they’ll add on one more they reach Snelgrove) and train is just about to pass under Regional Road 24 which is only about a km west of the well known ‘Caledon Village’ and half a km south of here lies the famous ‘Forks of the Credit Provincial Park’ which 333 will be passing through in only a couple short minutes. Seeing the tree leaves beginning to change indicates with no doubt that autumn has officially arrived!

  1. Excellent photo Graydon.

  2. Thank you very much Railwayguy and Craig for the nice comments, appreciate the feedback a lot!
    @railwayguy, glad you really liked this frame, I got a couple other photos near Alton and the Forks I hope to achieve as well this October when the tree leaves turn completely into the fall Colours, who knows if this may even be the last fall shots like this are do-able because at any time really Orangeville could suddenly drop the final bomb. But we’ll only know for sure what will become of this line in time, I personally just like to be wise and remember it’s always better safe than sorry so of course make the most of the good times because they can only be here for so long.. Thanks again for the kind feedback on the photo

  3. Nice shot, Graydon. I’ve always liked this location.

  4. Very, very nice Graydon, great composition and “framing” the 333 between the “forests” of changing colours. The blue engine, white hopper cars and green trees go so nicely together in the sunlight ! Thank you
