CN SD40-2 5378 and GP40-2L(W) 9574 head freight #307 westbound on the York Sub approaching the diamond at Snider with some interesting loads on the head end: new subway cars from Thunder Bay for shipment overseas to Ankara, Turkey. In the mid-90's, Ankara purchased an order of 108 new subway cars from Bombardier for their new Metro system. They were similar to the design of the TTC's H6 subway cars (even though the TTC was started to get a slightly updated T1 design at the time). They were shipped by rail on flatcars from Thunder Bay to the east coast for export overseas.
