It is no easy task finding interesting photo locations within Brampton. Much of the old CP line to Orangeville is now surrounded by endless housing developments. Not to mention how hard it is to shoot a northbound train when the sun is out. This location just east of the Chinguacousy Rd crossings always caught my eye as it has a small community park on a hillside overlooking a small creek along the right of way. Unfortunately there is no hiding that ugly cell tower. My goal this year is to try to find as many new locations along the line before its possible demise next year. While MP15 333 may not be the most exciting to look at compared to the GP9's of the past, I am going for scenery over motive power. This line has such a deep history, It has been sad watching it fade. Here the two man crew give a friendly wave as the dig into the slight grade with seven cars pulling on the drawbar. Needless to say the sound at least was impressive.

  1. Dang a 7 car train yesterday?? Definitely seems rather rare to just even get a 5 car train on that line now IMHO!
    Definitely not impossible I know but just about every average train I’ve been seeing has to be about 2-3 cars max, 4 if your lucky!
    Anything just to re-visit 2017 and see 4015 again, especially as average trains that year often ranged about this size!
    Ah well, what can you do now right but Great Pic Marcus!!

  2. That was such a good Chase !
