Credit at the east end of Georgetown was often an interesting place to take in some train action. Back when the bridge over the Credit River was still single track, a little congestion could really tie up the railroad. Unfortunately Metrolinx push for regular GO service to Kitchener and now Stratford would force CN to finally double track the bridge and for the most part any chance of photographing train meets. A new signal bridge here has also wrecked most westbound shots from the road bridge. On this warm August 2004 day CN train 338 is force to wait at the west side of the bridge while train 393 with a former Alstom SD40 and 2 BNSF SD40’s roll westward past train 338.
