7 Trains in a single shot - With OSR pulling ahead switching cars in the Goderich yard and a CP eastbound just around the corner, my timing couldn't have been better. It was a Sunday so all the GO trains were parked in the yard giving me my props. I managed a few 'multiple train' photos from Bert Eliander's house on his hillside but this was one of my best. What makes it for me is the Shortline action - this is the shot I wanted and was the hardest to get.

Caption: 7 Trains, three builders (MLW, EMD, GE), in a single shot - With OSR pulling ahead switching cars in the Goderich yard and a CP eastbound just around the corner, my timing couldn't have been better. It was a Sunday so all the GO trains were parked in the yard giving me my props. I managed a few 'multiple train' photos from Bert Eliander's house on his hillside but this was one of my best. What makes it for me is the Shortline action - this is the shot I wanted and was the hardest to get - usually by the time OSR was on duty in the morning all GO trains were gone and weekend extras weren't very common. Nikon D70, 50mm f/1.8 prime.

  1. It’s amazing how this place has changed, especially in recent Years.

  2. Yep. This is a real beauty, and anyone who hangs out around this spot knows how difficult it would be to capture something like this.

  3. 1984 would suffice too :)

  4. Nice shot! It would be interesting to do a time machine shot of this (maybe in 2024) and see the changes

  5. Excellent photo Steve !
