CN L570 is seen making a rare move through the Union Station Rail Corridor (USRC) pulling through the plant at Dufferin (Exhibition GO). Behind 4776, 4771, and 4114 are 88 empty racks bound for Oakville from Mac yard. Thanks for the heads up!

  1. Not so rare actually. L570 runs via the Bala and Oakville as required. Nice catch!

  2. Considering it happens a few times a year at best, and majority of said moves are at night, i’d consider it rare.

  3. A few times a year at best? Hardly. I have worked that job many times, so I can say its more than a few times a year. Yes most moves happen at night because of the GO traffic. Weekends are less of a worry. Also because freight trains using the USRC have to pay wheelage and weight rates CN uses this route only when required.

  4. Nice catch! Cool to see a freight through downtown TO. Didn’t 435 use this route for a while? I recall back in 2011 they ran south along the Bala Sub; caught it several times at a site off Leslie St, south of the 401.

  5. Hey Kevin, you are correct. 435 did run down the Bala with a set off at Oakville then to Aldershot.

  6. At least I can see where I work. Lol.
