We're at Belview Park in Hamilton - my daughter - two years old at the time - and I are playing in the playground as we had spent some time photographing CP near US Steel earlier in the morning. I figured this would be a  nice spot for us to let off some steam before the train showed up. Imagine our suprise as our play is interrupted by the sound of three roaring 567's struggling to maintain track speed as they lift heavy tonnage up the grade from the CNR underpass. In total three GP9's - 1646, 1516, and 1542 with 4000 tons, 2500' of Steel Ingots - after the show ended we resumed our play and enjoyed the rest of the early spring-like weather.
