Snapped this image from off the Lemonville Road bridge in Aldershot. This used to be a nice vantage-point, as it was a very quiet bridge back then and one could park right on the structure; put on the flashers and watch the rail traffic. Unfortunately, no longer the case. The scene has changed now, with the addition of the "GO" track a few years ago. CN 1359 and 1349 have a few cars for Hamilton. Interesting too, the 1359 went in 1999 to Southern Ontario Railway which leased Hamilton's Stuart St yard from CN beginning in late 1997. The unit was dealt off in 2011 to Lambton Diesel, and is now CCGX 1006 as of 2013. Trailing unit 1349 went to CANAC in 1998. Hard to believe the massive fleet of these SW1200s is gone. There were 192 of them once upon a time according to an older CTG guide. The new guide lists ONE.
