What I'm guessing is train 391 emerges from under the CP Belleville Sub overpass trailing CN 9313, CR 6463, and CN 2103. This goes back to pretty much the start of my photographing trains (on slides that is) is a, gasp, Fuji transparency. Come to think about it, I was using a Canon at the time, so it's remarkable that this came out at all, lol. The power was nothing special for that time, though I always enjoyed catching one of the straight GP40's on the point since we were still drowning in a pool of GP40-2L's, and they were a little unique. The Conrail SD40-2 was payback horse power hours, and we're common at the time, though SD50's seemed to be more often used as HPH repayment units. And the HR-616... again common at the time, but boy do I miss them now.

  1. Great stuff, you need to post more of your “oldies” Mike ;)

  2. Yes, the 90′s were, looking back, pretty good for variety. But as always seems to be the case with foamers, the decade before was so much better. If that holds true, 2026 is going to be pretty weak.

  3. Ahh, the 90′s. What a glorious decade.

  4. 390/391 and 394/395 were still running from Montreal straight through to Chicago (to UP and BNSF respectively) in 1996. There is a TSB resport of a fatality in Brockville involving CN 395 in April of 1995. I think the change from Toronto origin/destination was in 1998 or 1999. Probably 1999 with the coming of EHH. Others bypassing Mac would be a Sorel to Sarnia train running at that time as well (362/363 iirc), and the Garneau to Buffalo 335.

    Thinking about it and looking at the power, not very likely headed to Chicago and it’s most likely a Toronto destination train… 307, 309, 369?

  5. Probably not 391 as those trains ran east/west out of Mac Yrd in the 90′s. Nice shot though.
