Three CN GP40-2L(W) units and two GP9's are smoking it up as they howl by a lone passenger waiting at the old stone 1856 GTR Georgetown Station in the afternoon. They're working hard on a westbound extra freight, climbing the grade from the Credit River leading to Silver. Zebra-striped power, a weedy station track, GO single-levels in the "commuter compound", an old baggage cart by the station and some vintage autos peg this shot in the 70's-80's.

  1. Hope you Georgetown folks are enjoying this image :) *waves from Guelph*

  2. Great image! I was just there yesterday surprising this angle is still somewhat similar all these years later.

  3. This might have even been heading to Kitchener with the frame car flats. Awesome photo.
