ETR 107 shoves a tank car towards the switch back to get off of the "Chatham Sub" (ETR doesn't actually have a connection to VIA Rail here) and back to their main yard on Lincoln. They have just finished a somewhat rare afternoon run down to service Hiram Walker's in the Olde Walkerville neighbourhood of Windsor, ON. which was its own town up until 1935 when the City of Windsor annexed it along with Sandwich, Ford City, and East Windsor. Hiram Walker founded the town when he founded his distillery here which continues to distill Canadian Club Whiskey to this day. VIA Rail's Windsor (Walkerville) Station is located at this location as well. Up until about 4 years ago, CN served Hiram Walker's. They dropped the contract and ETR took over the tank car services while the grains were moved over to trucks and the small yard that still remained on the waterfront next to Riverside Drive was ripped up along with the track west of Walker Road with the exception of the track ETR uses to serve the distillery.
