A meet at Snider West as VIA 11, equipment move to Vancouver with *five* F40's in the lead waits to reverse to the York Sub off the Newmarket connecting track. 11 would be reversing not too long after this shot was taken, and you can now sense our nervousness, the CN intermodal train might just block us entirely from the shot on this beautiful March day. After biting our nails and pacing a bit in excitement, we'd actually still get the shot, despite the westward reverse move happening with a CN freight blocking our view, we'd get the VIA's eastbound movement just moments after the tail end of the freight passed, and we'd also go home with this meet shot which would have been impossible otherwiseHere's Steve Bradley's beautiful view of the same train from Parry Sound.
