The CN version of the Nanticoke Steel Train, in this image on the move from Hamilton to the affiliated steel mill in Nanticoke by way of Brantford and south was very short lived running with this A-B-A lashup. There always seemed to be some mechanical problem and it wasn't long before GP9s were in the mix and after that, the GP40 Widecabs took over, making this, in the hearts of the fans, just another train heading west............
Seen here approaching Mile 1 Dundas sub are CN 9166, 9195 and 9177. The bridge in the background supports Old Guelph Rd.  Winning "a fight with the cloud" was nice. :o)
