VIA 6510-72 021889 VIA 6510 with Windsor to Toronto train 72 arrives at Glencoe, mile 27.7 on the CN's Chatham Sub. February 18, 1989

Even the locals are a bit awe-struck as CN's "Nanticoke" steel train rumbles up the middle of Ferguson Ave.N. in downtown Hamilton on its way up the hill thru Rymal, Caledonia, Hagersville and Garnet to the destination at the big steel facility on Lake Erie, about a 36 mile trip. Power this day is CN 9169, 9196, 9172 with a rather short train. Caboose at each end so power can run around train upon return. Photographer: Arnold Mooney
