CP 3033
Title:  CP 3033
Description:  After getting some fine shots of CN Train 422, I picked up my favourite CP loco combo on the scanner working a freight transfer at CN Southern Yard, so it was off to White Road, then Miller Road, for a couple of shots in the bright winter sunshine. All in all, a very rewarding morning.
