A rare morning switch of Ashland Chemical (formerly Hercules Chemical) in Burlington Ontario off what remains of the CNR Beach Subdivision in Burlington Ontario. Worth a visit, the Freeman Station (formerly  Burlington West) was located behind the plant and is now just to the east by the fire station, and now a museum. Word is this plant received their last car recently, but never say never, it just may be a summer shut down, who knows at this point in time.
