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.  As the locomotives are run south up the escarpment the Jumboship Daniella approaches lock 7 on the Welland Canal on its way to Toronto Harbour where the locomotives will be loaded for their trip to Europe.

  1. A neat and very unlikely combo!

  2. This is excellent Tony. First you bag european engines in testing in Canada – then shoot them beside the ship they are being transported on later? More importantly, one could argue this photo was taken in the Netherlands :)

  3. I understand ITS was taken over by EMD, and export locomotives, like most of EMD’s products are now built in Indiana.

  4. Love this shot. Only thing missing is a plane.

  5. DUDE…..NO WAY

  6. Woah. Does ITS still exist? Will this sight be possible again?
