After finishing their evening run to Hamilton (James Street) station, an 8-car GO train departs eastbound, deadheading back to Willowbrook Yard via the CN Oakville Sub. GO GP40-2W 700 leads up front on the approach to Bayview Junction, with GP40-2W 708 and F40PH 511 seen bringing up the rear through Hamilton Junction. Three locomotives and eight bilevels might seem a bit overpowered, but at the time GO Transit's six new F40PH units (510-515) were only a month or two old, so 511 could be doing break-in or test runs before being released on its own (it would also be the only unit here able to provide HEP to the bilevels).
