April 1, 1984. ( the day singer Marvin Gay died). But for me, just another day of hanging out at the CN + CP diamond west of Chatham. I lived on the near west side of the city, so it was only a 10 minute drive to get here. I only made the effort on days that were sunny and clear from humidity. I would also only spend time when certain passenger trains were scheduled because I knew the F40's were going to be purchased, and I wanted to get the cab units in their twilight. On this Sunday, I waited for train 75 to appear in the distance, then I hastily climbed to the first-level perch of the eastward Absolute signal and grabbed this image as the A-B pair of MLW's throttled up again.
