On a cold afternoon in January, CN 338 awaits a new crew at the now-closed Chinguacousy Road crossing. CN SD75I 5697, and SD40-2/W units 5386 and 5249 idle on the south main track around Mile 17 of the Halton Sub, as the snow lightly falls around them as far as the eye can see.With a newly constructed overpass of fresh white concrete behind the photographer, a transformer station to the right, a new neighbourhood under development to the left, and an old decommissioned grade crossing front, it made for an interesting area at the edge of development in Brampton, as the city limits pushed outwards and countryside that was once next to the rail lines became swallowed up over time, like snow enveloping the barren landscape in winter.
