I'm standing on what was the CP right of way (high line, by elevator) while GEXR 581 shuffles cars before making an attempt at the hill. A great spot to watch real railroading, seeing the boys attempting to get loaded salt cars up the 2.8% grade to the station area is quite a sight. 4095 has since been re-assigned to G&W's newest operation in Oshawa Ontario for the GM plant.

  1. Nice shot Hosty.

  2. Makes you miss summer. Excellent angle.

  3. So 4095 is away from the water. No more steep hills to climb I wonder what power will be in Goderich
