Naturally, one often takes liberties to get "that shot". Leaving Bramalea on the GO Train, CN #577 with a pair of GP40-2L(W) units were spotted ready to leave Malport and follow us down the single-track Weston Sub, on their way to interchange cars with CP at West Toronto. The only freights that used the line were afternoon transfer run #577 and the night switcher #579 (that only went as far as Etobicoke North though) I also had some time to kill, and an idea for a shot I wanted.

So, upon arrival at Weston GO Station, it was decided to trade off a quick ride downtown for a shot of #577 and TTC it the rest of the way. Hopping off the train at 12:31pm and walking up a block or two, it was a short wait of 8 minutes. Riding GO #260's block, CN #577 with 9523 and 9551 on point rounds the bend into the town of Weston ON with their short train.

Then I walked down Church St., and patiently waited for the next 89 Weston bus to Keele Subway Station. Back to your regular programming.

  1. Well worth the detour, MD. Matching paint, too.
