CN 4906 has been assigned to CN 580 in Brantford for the past few weeks, and for the most part it has alluded me. Today I arrived at the CN yard to find the unit sitting in perfect sunlight... mostly blocked by a centre beam flatcar.  Fantastic.  Figuring I was out of luck, I took a photo of what I could and called it good.  The crew eventually returned from their lunch break and I later managed to get a decent roster shot.  However, I like this photo because it clearly shows the effort someone at CN made to cut "CN" and "4906" stencils to re-number the unit.  Aesthetics aside, a fine effort!
