Caption: The last pair of a Nedrail (Netherlands) order for ten JT42CWR (EMD Class 66) locomotives are test run on the Trillium Railway in May 2006. ITS Rail assembled the locomotives under subcontract to EMD, at the ITS Rail plant in St. Catharines, ON. The locomotives wait in Merritton yard for a Hamilton bound CN freight to clear so they can cross the Grimsby Sub and head south towards Thorold. Its unusual to see equipment built to the smaller European loading gauge alongside the somewhat larger North American rolling stock. In the background, a Niagara bound train crosses the bridge over the Welland Canal.
