Heading away from the camera, on the CP Hamilton Sub, is CN L562 with a solo CN 5615 and 50+ cars headed for interchange with Trillium at Feeder. Of note are the 40 or so hoppers bringing up the rear - all old 3800 cubic foot CN hoppers on their final ride with CN, heading for scrap at SLM in Welland. Pictured at centre and crossing over top of 562 on the CN Stamford Sub is CN L531, heading for Fort Erie and onward to Buffalo. 2283 and 2006 were at the helm of 531. I was here waiting for 562 so I could document the demise of these hoppers, and I was up on Miller Road waiting for it to come off of the connecting track and onto the Hamilton Sub, when I heard 531 blowing for a nearby crossing and hoped I might be able to see an interesting meet of two CN trains - one on CP track and the other on CN. I admittedly did not have this shot in mind when I got to Miller, but am happy things fell into place.
