A rail strike in the US in 1978 I believe is the reason for this massive train's presense at Fort Erie. It had run over the CASO from Detroit. D&H 7412 (x-RDG), N&W 830, 2493, D&H 7420, N&W 2709, xxxx and 1572 was the power up front. (Approval for 6 axle units along the line not given until November of 1998) Train is stopped under the Central Av bridge, awaiting clearance to enter the USA via the International Bridge.
