I have to admit it. I rarely get luckier than this. Back in 1994 the cross-border shopping experience was almost a frenzy. There were lineups both ways on the bridges with the one-day shopping trips. I had been over to get gas at 'Smokin' Joes' as well as pick up a few groceries. So here I am waiting on the Whirlpool Rapids bridge, about centre, heck, maybe still in the States; and out of the corner of my eye I see a train bound for the US!! And I am in a perfect position to shoot right out the car window. CP 4223, 4224 and 1848 come into view and this is the result. Camera handy on the front seat, as always. And it paid off.  This was the best shot I was able to get from this bridge, and it can never happen again. The rail bridge is abandoned and the road bridge is Nexus Card only.
