CP train 923 with 4239 and VIA Rail 6455 is heading westbound at Streetsville, Ontario on the Galt Subdivision. During 1994-1995 CP had leased several VIA Rail units to assist them through their severe motive power shortage until the new GE's that were on order started arriving. 

Also of note; according to Branchline Magazine, this train also lifted new Caltrans F59PHM-I's 2003 and 2002 from London that day. Both of these had recently been built at the GMDD facility and were enroute to California.

  1. What a beauty

  2. Great photo! While looking at old views of Steeetsville circa mid 1990s, I noticed that the entire GO station and platform seemed to be in a completely different position than modern times, would anyone be able to elaborate on when GO moved their platform into the center of the 2 main tracks? and I also believe the tracks were moved, or that signal cantilever in the background was moved closer towards the Missisauga Rd. level crossing
