Westbound CN #425 with a long string of TOFC up front, something we rarely see any more, climbs the grade at mile 4.4 Dundas. The remnants of old Canada Crushed Stone operation can be seen on the hillside. (This business shut down around 1974) A siding on the south side is still in, MoW used this track frequently. In the lower level, the lead to the old Steetley dolomite operations (as well as one time a TH&B connection) was taken up in October 1985. That is Sydenham Rd bridge in the background. Power shown is CN 9507, 9411, 9501 and 2108. Photo shot with Speed Graphic 4x5 at 1000 f5.6 and 160 ISO Vericolor III film. This nice vantage point was overgrown by relentless foliage many years ago, unfortunately.
