If I was to write a letter to my 18 year old self, it would be to tell me that this was the glory days of railroading. That I should spend as much time as possible here...the 3 unit sets of GP9's working the hump, the odd FB unit, and every bit of magic that came from MLW. That the opportunity to sign a release form and walk to the shop wouldn't last forever...and that there's a reason why Blacks brand film is cheap...buy Kodak....and 20 years later, do not store you slides in the furnace room where a pinhole leak in a copper pipe would do unimaginable damage.

The "Empress of Agincourt", with it's regular SD40 partner on the Lambton Transfer.
