It wasn't that long ago that 435 took the scenic route around Toronto via the York, Bala and Oakville subs, traveling east, south and west respectively.  The only through freight on the Oakville sub at this time.

With second generation leader GP38-2 4700, followed by three first gen GP9s 7080, 7022 and 4110, the motive power department must not have had a lot of options this day. Their naturally aspirated roar was easily heard above traffic on the Gardiner Expressway.

  1. Is this the train that ran daily in the afternoon, normally with 6 axle power and is it still running?

  2. Another question… I just moved into the Dufferin/Queen area of Toronto. Do you know a good time to catch freights on the Oakville sub? Unfortunately the Weston sub I can see out my window only has GO and VIA action, a lot of trains for Passenger fans. Thanks in advance.

  3. 435 now runs via the Halton sub. There aren’t any freights on the Oakville sub at this location anymore.
