It simply doesn't get better than this. In a scene from 1954, 3 CP cab units have 13 heavyweights....well, 12 and an equipment car southbound...as it should be....over the Parry Sound crossing of the Seguin River. This train got unimaginable...OK, an easily imaginable amount of attention it traversed Southern Ontario. 

The challenge now is to get CN and CP to put in another set of crossovers north of the CN Parry Sound station so that everything southbound in the morning over the bridge, and northbound in the afternoon. I'll let you know if Keith gets back to me about the idea. You also wonder if this shot might come to life with 2816.
