The Starlight was a daily CP train that came over from Toronto via the Oakville Sub in the late afternoon, returning a couple of hours later. By this date, common power was either a pair of SD40s, or big Alcos, or a combination of the two. Today however we're treated to a mix of four axles that includes GP35 5024, GP35 3561 & C424 4244. The C&O was part of a batch leased at the time that included GP30s.

  1. What’s neat is how little the Hamilton Skyline has changed since its 70′s heydays, while Toronto’s completely different now.

  2. Even more significant is that CP 4244 is in the consist… the finest unit in the fleet.

  3. CP also ran auto racks into Oakville from Canpa along the Oakville sub. Railfanning the CN Oakville sub back in the day you would see more CP through freights than CN.
