CN's test RDC is something I had been trying to shoot for years, but the timing had never worked out. This past Friday I was finally able to shoot it leaving Pointe St-Charles Yard in the morning, on its way to testing the Montreal Sub (the slightly elevated tracks in the background). Behind the Montreal Sub are some MGLX cars at Ray-Mont Logistics. Behind that is the skyline of downtown Montreal, one railway-related building is the Marriott Château Champlain hotel at left, built by CP across the street from its then headquarters of Windsor Station and opened to the public in 1967.

  1. It is the overall scene that really makes this shot.

  2. Was certainly glad to get it at a very identifiably Montreal location such as this.
