More passenger units hauling freight: CP SD40-2 5738 leads GO Transit GP40-2W's 709, 705, and GP40-3 723 on train #904, eastbound on the Galt Sub crossing the Grand River bridge at Mile 57.44. CP often borrowed the GO commuter units to haul freight (mostly on weekends, although February 18th was a Friday) in the Windsor-Montreal corridor, and had to have them back to GO in Toronto for Monday morning commuter duties.

Steve Danko also caught the same train earlier that day at Coakley (Woodstock).
