Remarks & Notes 
This freight from the East is about to enter CN's huge Montreal Yard (now called Taschereau Yard). This scene has changed considerably as the heavy industry is gone - the Norco fuel distribution plant closed and the huge Consumers Glass plant was destroyed in 1995 in a massive fire, replaced with a housing development. The CN four track mainline still is very active and the bridge in the background behind the CN signal bridge is the CP Adirondack Subdivision.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.
