This by far was one of my favourite early on railfan spots. A number of us used to meet up at mile 30 typically on Sunday just to take in some action. The hike up the hill where the golf course now is was always worth while with nice scenic shots in either direction. One could easily spend an afternoon here and we often did. Unfortunately with the Pro Links golf course on either side of the tracks today along with a bridge to the east of this shot, it is not quite the same here anymore not to mention how much greener has filled in the location eliminating this angle completely. I’m glad I spent the time I did here. This train was an interesting one as it was a rare unit grain train that started out with another IC SD70 in the lead. Unfortunately it was replaced by 5340 in Sarnia. This still made for a nice mix of power and it was always nice catching the DWP units in any consist. I never photographed from the hill on the other side as the lighting never worked but looks like it would have made a nice shot on an overcast day.

  1. The grain cars seem to go on forever down the distant track. :-)
