Did you know ex-SP tunnel motor's were leading trains in southern Ontario long before GEXR 9392 showed up ?  Well on at least one occasion, CN 271 is seen being lead by SD40T-2 leaser GECX 8664. I'd just shot it trailing on 334 the day before and was shocked to get a phone call the next morning saying it was leading 271 !

  1. Matt, depending time of year you can shoot from the bridge at Garden Ave which would have been right behind you in this shot. Powerline Road is so so. I tend to hit up the junction for morning WB’s if they’re decent.

  2. Sorry Mr Host, from what I recall it’s not really a story to post on the interweb ;)

    awmooney I seem to recall saying something similar as it approached, also not appropriate to post.

    Marcus That blows… where do you shoot a morning westbound these day ? ….. If there still are any.

  3. Good Grief !!!!! (That says it all, doesn’t it?)

  4. Story time. Matt do tell :)

  5. Awesome shot Matt! I remember you had a good story to go along with this shot :) too bad this location is so overgrown now, was once a favourite of mine.
