Caption: The days of CN's "Bullet-Nose Betty" 6060 getting rather long-in-the-tooth as she is now being assisted by VIA 6539 on the twice weekly tourist run from Toronto to Niagara Falls and return. In this view, one can see the Welland Canal bridge 6 counterweight in the background, and crossing gates returning to their upright position at the Glendale Av crossing, as the Toronto-bound afternoon train roars past the old Merritton station (destroyed by fire Oct 1994). Some of the local population watch in admiration. That is the old GM plant in background on the left; foreground freight cars are in now-taken-up Merritton yard, while local switcher CN 7168 waits it all out.
