It’s one of those signature Southern Ontario shots. Chances are if you are a railfan in Ontario you have taken at least one photo here. Granted the motive power this day could have been more exciting, especially considering that the Hapag Lloyd unit was unfortunately in DPU status and visible in the distance and not on the head end. The sounds here are just as dramatic as the scenery as the heat wave blur the Niagara escarpment looming in the background as the train ducks under the old wooden farm bridge. It’s a steep climb to Guelph junction from here and the motive power is being put to the test. It’s not often I get to catch this train as it’s typically a night or early morning train so this was a nice catch.

  1. Very nice indeed, the 8884 and train so neatly framed by the overhead wooden bridge ! Well done, John
