I was driving into Kitchener, Ont. on Hwy 7/8 when I saw the train on the nearby CPR line. I exited the highway and grabbed a few photos.
It was a perfect day for photos: I was in the right place and the right time, the sun was in the right location and it was a perfect sky.
The train pulled ahead of the switch, then dropped off a few cars on to a spur. It pulled ahead, then back up to where it had come from.
And, for once, I was there to see it--under the right conditions.
