The geese in the cold Grand River are startled as CN L540 flies over the bridge in Breslau at a very well maintained speed with GTW 6226 and CN 4028 for horsepower. Unfortunately in a photographer’s perspective, this bridge is now slightly less appealing as railings were placed on both sides permanently by Metrolinx for general safety purposes. Although I missed out on plenty GEXR opportunities here, I still managed to get a few with CN this being my only one with a good amount of snow which looks great with the water. As for 6226, this unit is now assigned to the Ottawa area and for some reason Kitchener was the only place it was based out of in this part of Ontario and not for long either.

  1. Great shot Liam! The old school Railbox boxcar up front is a nice touch.

  2. Thanks Kevin

  3. Very nice indeed Liam. @KevinFlood re: the Railbox. You don’t see many of the around but the TTX you see of course with the “Next Load, Any Road!” logo on the other side. I always wondered about that!

  4. Really excellent photo Liam. Sweet consist too!
