  1. Very nice picture Michael, lots of nice trees in the background, like the way the signal bridge masks some of the line side commercial clutter, nice action, and very nice to see “Saskatchewan “ grain cars here in the east. I guess they are heading home after having delivered grain to Port of Montreal. You are being clever to photograph and record for history not only VIA LRC’s and the GE units, but the aging MGLX grain cars. In another year both will start to be replaced by the new Alstom train sets and more new CN grain cars, all currently on order. Many thanks for posting, keep well, John

  2. Thanks. These cars had actually come from Quebec City.
