Remarks & Notes 
Pantograph down, this trackage was deelectrified long ago! Dual-mode (electric and diesel) engine AMT 1359 is pushing AMT 807 from Mont St-Hilaire towards Central Station which is a few minutes away. Behind the engine is CN Wellington tower, which until about 10 years ago controlled much of CN's trackage around here. While AMT 1359 has a pantograph for electric use, unfortunately this trackage was deelectrified about 65 years ago when CN dieselized, thus eliminating the needs for electric engines to replace steam engines on the approach to Central Station.
