Neat shot--is this the corporate remnant of Ottawa Central?

No, the CFL is a section of the former CPR St-Gabriel sub from Joliette to St-Felix-de-Valois. It interchanges with Quebec Gatineau at Joliette. Perversely, most of their traffic comes from CN. The CN/QG/CFL interchange is 1/4 mile south of where CFL ends. Although the CFL can see the cars for them at the CN interchange they have to wait for QG to move the cars 1/4 mile to them.

The Ottawa Central was all ex-CNR trackage (now back in CN hands due to the financial collapse of the Quebec Railway Corp). The #3000 looks like an Ottawa Central unit because it was the demonstrator built by ERS in Moncton with the NBEC/Ottawa Central in mind. Somehow it escaped the CN purge of all NBEC RS-18's.

Attached is a shot of the QG crossing the CN diamond in Joliette having just interchanged with CFL.

Nice winter shots KG. Do you have anymore of the CFL 3000 that you could post?
