With a throaty growl, clear stacks and a heavy train, four old warriors make it clear there is still plenty of life in their bones as they cross Mt. Pleasant Road.  In a moment they'll shake the ground and rattle the windows on Shaftesbury Ave., just to spite the neighbours.  I wonder how that feels at 3:00 a.m.?

  1. Depends on the person I guess, but I happen to live next to the tracks in this area, and the trains almost never woke me up. The only times I’ve ever been woken up is an eastbound Expressway throttling up from Bartlett with EMD power, normally SD40-2′s. The sound of EMD 645′s in notch 8 shook the entire neighborhood. I can’t forget though, the Geeps were pretty loud too, especially in quads. Thanks for the memory.

  2. Made even better by the fact, nearly all of these, if not all, are now retired and out of service.
