Thanks PEIR.One of my favourite spots for rail-fanning in my hometown is Bayview Junction---this picture was taken from the Laking Garden bridge looking south.

...and in my favourite paint scheme, too!! Worship Worship

While this isn't my favourite paint scheme, I don't mind it all that much, as it's on my favourite cab unit...

It would've looked even better in its original green/gold/black.

Re: My Hometown---Part 4 - Charlie B - 09-18-2017

Well, not exactly your hometown, but I too like the ALCo/MLW covered wagons. This was taken in October, 1979 from Fort York, a great place to take pictures at the time.[attachment=27870]Charlie


Re: My Hometown---Part 4 - cn nutbar - 09-18-2017

Wayne and Charlie---thanks for adding your photos---certainly is great to see other member's photos taken in and around my hometown :tada:


Re: My Hometown---Part 4 - cn nutbar - 09-18-2017

Another set of MLW cab-units taken really close to my hometown on the Leetown Division---Doc,I thought you might like this even though it's not in the classic green/yellow/black CNR livery.

Some pictures taken this morning from the Bay St. bridge.The first shot is a special passenger train which was bringing the athletes from the Invictus Games to Niagara Falls

[Image: 37356642331_d8367c51df_b.jpg]

This passenger special created a bit of a backlog of the regular freights so I was lucky to catch Train 422 which is usually an early morning train

Some interesting power on 422 including C40-8 #2003
