With all kinds of attention on the OBRY, back in 2005 I wanted to shoot them and decided to go to the diamond in Brampton and just wait for it. There would be CN trains - and good ones too, there always was. You didn't have to wait long - there were twice the trains and half of them had something good leading. After a flurry of CN and GEXR freights, the OBRY appeared and I chased them to Streetsville and back. The above is one of the other CN freights we saw and one of the better pictures I got that day. It was just another freight at the time, and nothing special (nothing was foreign on this train) but now it's definitely a good one.

  1. Very nice photo Steve!! By ‘Twice the Trains’ I guess you ment twice the CN Freights in 2005 compared to now correct?
    Wasn’t until Sept 2015 when the RTC had all the half hr GO Trains to juggle as Dan Dell’Unto stated in his photo himself http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=47361 and it has only increased to about 3-4 GO trains per hr I think so a decent relief now I think the Halton Sub RTC has. Especially since them GO’s will only continue to increase as time passes.

  2. Yes. GO trains don’t count, not to me.
