Railfans in the Windsor area have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of autoracks on the Essex Terminal since the Terminal bought the property of the old GM Transmission plant in Aug of 2017 and turned it into an auto transfer facility named Motipark Automotive Storage. The facility has been operational for over a year now, but no racks had been brought in yet. That changed on Feb 6 when around 50 of them arrived from CP. Here we see 104 & 108 switching the facility for one of the first times, with the former GM grounds at left and the ETR shops in the distance at right. A welcomed sight that will take some getting used to.
