1973-built Grand Trunk Western GP40-2 6420 sits in front of the 1905-built Grand Trunk Railway station in Brantford. Following their lunch break, the conductor and brakeman were walking to the train as I took this photo, and 580 would soon depart for Cainsville to switch Blastech and Rembos.  Today was this first day these two units were assigned to 580 and they have already attracted a fair bit of foamer attention.  Hopefully the pair stick around for a while.
