Back in the day there was always something of interest on the daily pulp train. Look at all the logs heading down to the pulp and paper mill in Thorold South !!  Every day. Still hard to believe this company is no longer, having closed up a few years ago.  Interesting lot of power this afternoon; CN 9632, 3101, 4004 and 4527. Four units, four models.
Not sure what is on the flat behind all the wood. Looks like a vehicle of sorts. The view down in the Jct at Bayview is obscured, but there are a few interested spectators visible up on the RBG hillside.
In the foreground, that is the CN line heading westward,"The Cowpath" as it is known, and the closest track is the CP.
