On a pleasant August afternoon in 2004 I was In the far north east of Toronto where CP's Belleville sub crosses the CN York sub. Its a pleasant spot not far from the zoo, and on this quiet afternoon I could hear the animals calling in the distance.  But I could also hear the distant call of two approaching freight trains as they whistled for grade crossings.  Two westbound trains converging at the crossing, would I get the head end of both trains in the frame?  Unfortunately, the CN train got there first while the CP (SOO) locomotives were about a hundred yards away.

  1. Tha tCP train would have been 153 destined for Detroit/Chicago. The SOO units & single stack containers are the giveaway.
