  1. That is really awesome…Merry Christmas and all the best in 2023

  2. Hallowed ground. To think it would all be idled a few years later. I never did shoot inside the CSX “Roundhouse” in Sarnia (what remains there is 3 stalls of a former roundhouse, turntable was filled in a long time ago). It’s still there but locomotives do not go inside anymore.

    Merry Christmas and wishing you a safe and happy 2023!
