Canadian Pacific's locomotive 7021, painted to honour the Canadian and US Armies passes through brilliant fall colours as the crew of train 246 gingerly guides their train down the 2% downward grade of the Niagara Escarpment. This area is a fall foliage paradise, and to reflect this here's a shot I did in 2010 just a bit north at Snake Rd framed in the now rebuilt wooden bridge. Get it while you still can, it'll all be gone in about a week or less.
