Two of Montreal's  finest: MLW Century 630M's coast downgrade - about to pass under the Stephenson Road / Lakeshore Road bridge CN Kingston mile 284.3....that curve was more super-elevated prior to the LRC's introduction !


To commemorate the 2013 CARM Convention ( August 9 to 11 ) in Port Hope please enjoy this April 1980 Kodachrome of a westbound (and now relatively rare) conventional CN freight – in two paint schemes - on the approach to the Clarke crossovers. 


CN Century's 2036 and 2026, built 1967-8, and sisters were all gone by 1996, with nine sold to CB&CNSRy.


That is the CP Rail  Lovekin siding – Belleville Sub mile 156.0 - in the left background and note how the land between was once farmed – a real challenge today to a get a clear shot of a westbound CPR !

  1. The first boxcar was an oddity. The reporting marks are on the right hand side of the door.

  2. Now there’s a good looking freight train! Not a GE widecab in sight!
