Tuesday Train #203


Canadian Pacific Railway SD40-2F No 9006 leads an eastbound expressway intermodal trailer train from Detroit to Toronto (Milton) circa 2001. I don’t know why I thought shooting from the south side here would be good, the light was terrible, but it’s a rare for me daytime CPR success. The Expressway service would later be reduced to just Toronto-Montreal, and eventually cancelled in 2018. One of the last Toronto-Montreal trains made Tuesday Train #107 at that time. The picture below shows the custom joined flatcars that trailers were driven onto and off of at each end of the run in the terminals. The service was an attempt to compete with overnight trucking for regional traffic between Toronto, Montreal and Detroit.
