Caption: While Trillium is waiting delivery of GMTX 223, I thought it was high time to see the Alco's in action while it's still a guarantee- this time getting lucky as I'd never shot 1859 before, not even on STER. In this photo the crew had just lifted 7 cars out of the yard by Riverland Agriculture (Robin Hood Flour) to deliver to Ingredion just up the line. With a bit of a grade and curve, 1859 is getting a good workout - a great spot for a bit of action on a mostly flat railway (except the Thorold grade, which will wait for another day!).
