Coming out of the sun; so had to find a decent angle for a shot, and this was the only alternative. So I wandered down along Zorra Township 35th Line to shoot across the cornfield.  Back in the days when useful information was hard to come by,it was a complete surprise when I saw up front CP 5923 and 5924 on their first run out of London !! (Third unit is C&0 3526).
It all seems so significant to me now considering these same locomotives are now going out to pasture, sold off and some even scrapped. Where have the 40 years gone? :o)  For the record, 5923 is still toiling for CP while 5924 has been converted to an ECO unit, according to the latest Trackside Guide.
Zorra station can be seen on the right. It was bulldozed out of existence by CP many years ago.
