CP SD40-2 #5674 leads two MLW M-636s on a westbound through the Newtonville S-curve. This is the more rarely photographed west end of the curve. September 1990. Back then it could be accessed from Elliott Road. With the construction of the nuclear waste dump and the windmill farm, that road is now private (and gated.) A determined railfan who tried to emulate this shot can get there from Lancaster Road or even Nichols Road then across country. The foliage has grown up, but last time I was there in 2008 there was still an angle that was unobscured.

  1. See http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=710 to get an idea of what can still be done at that location.

  2. That’s one for the history books John. It’s amazing how much the foliage has grown over the years… And that’s not a good thing!
