CN 438 lead by CN GMD1 1412, CN 6020 and CN 7058 lead a short freight just North of Essex over the CASO. The three locomotives and blowing snow give the impression of a much larger train, but back then as today, trains 438/439 didn't usually run on Sundays, so seeing this 9-car freight this day with this power was rather exciting. Caught it on my way to the Essex train show, only 78 days before total abandonment.

  1. Funny, first thing I thought of was that sign too. After I admired a nice photo, though :o )

  2. Great photo. Doesn’t 1412 normally work out of Oakville? Also I wonder what happened to that CN Essex sign… :)
