The Montrose Run... definitely a fun one. Here we see CP TE21 with 3004 and 7307 heading up the former CP Hamilton Subdivision (Now the Montrose Sub) on Grassy Brook Road running towards Niagara falls with 1 hopper car for one of the two businesses on the CP Chippawa Industrial Spur which was once part of the Michigan Central which had ran between Niagara on the Lake and Fort Erie. Trains used to frequent this line much more than they do now. Now you can expect to see just 2 trains a week on this line with small loads for industries in Niagara Falls.

  1. This is cool. How often are they running in daylight down then montrose? Its been a night job for yeara except occasional daylight runs and a couple months in 2020.

  2. Twice a week. Daylight so long as the days are long enough. The start time moved up over a year ago when the job was re-established.

  3. Rare scene these days.
