The International pauses at Sarnia before continuing it's journey to Chicago.  I too was headed to Chicago, but I'd be a passenger in my brother's sweet Chevy Cavalier from this point on.  The parents had dropped me off in Kitchner, and I rode the International to Sarnia to meet up with bro, who was doing a co-op at Dow Chemical at the time.  The following day we left for a Chicago railfan tour, and we saw some great stuff.  This photo is yet another example of not going out of my way for an Amtrak photo; I found it amusing after looking through so many slides the past few days.  The Amtrak B32-8WHs never looked good after they were repainted from the very attractive "Pepsi can" paint scheme.

  1. Good caption!! I do, however, have trouble considering a Chevy Cavalier “sweet”. (Yech)

  2. Sarcasm doesn’t translate well in print form!

  3. Great memories, Bro! Too bad the Chevy Cavalier didn’t make the shot – it matched the colour of the Amtrak unit, right down to the rusty running boards!
