Once a busy crossing, today this section of Silvercreek Parkway sits silent, now severed by the Guelph sub. a block away. The old rusty crossing signals have certainly seen some interesting trains over the years. CN 542 isn't as predictable as it once was and I was lucky to catch it heading towards Cambridge when it used to typically travel to Guelph. Leader GMTX 2277 once hauled passenger trains for the Long Island Railway but today settles for local runs for CN. Here train 542 has a pair of tank cars destined for a customer on the southwest end of Guelph. From there the pair will head to Cambridge and finish their day.

  1. Nice shot Marcus.

    7068 is only the second CN unit to be assigned to L542 this year along with 7521. It’s been a mostly GMTX stronghold.
