It wasn't the best of days when this shot was taken. Light rain, cloudy and overcast and the crew weren't to sure if the old GMD1, CN 1408 would have the power to pull this load up the grade after putting their train together at Edinburgh Road with the wet rails. They did make it as this photo shows as the approach Aberdeen Street. They would continue to worth the yard for several more hours.
