CN action on the south shore, St.Lambert, 1978
Author: eminence_grise

A busy afternoon near St.Lambert QC in December 1978, first, the intermodal I had photographed at Turcot yard passes through eastbound, then an eastbound behind a GP38 and a GP38-2W pulls out of the yard. Another eastbound passes under the signal bridge while yet another waits in the yard.

This location is difficult to access today due to highway doubling and fences along the right of way.

Is this what is now known as Southwark Yard?  Here are some contemporary views from the dome of Revelstoke Park last February.

From an earlier picture of the same train on a curve, it appears there were 3 coaches and 5 sleepers.  There were 14 cars total, including the baggage and transition.In late February, I would guess that it considered "low" season.
