CN GP40-2L(W) 9401 and a sister unit kick up a cloud of snow as they head eastbound on CN's Halton Sub with a freight in tow, passing under the Weston Road overpass by the Mile 2.4 marker on the approach to Snider West. The name "Snider" comes from a few early families in the area that owned farmland and mills in what was once the community of Edgeley (Jane & Hwy 7) in the 1800's.

  1. I suspect that might be the Keele St bridge. Looks like three tracks, the Mile 24 York Sub post and the dwarf for the Snider Plant.

  2. Beautiful

  3. I think you’re right Dave, thanks for the correction. This slide was only labeled as being in Toronto, I had thought it was Mile 2.4 Halton Sub (Weston Rd) but it looks like it’s Mile 24 York Sub (Keele St).
