Remarks & Notes 
Train Time at Brockville Three times a day, each way, activity at the Brockville, Ontario station was more than just a passing freight or a long-distance passenger train blowing through town without slowing down. Trains from Toronto, segregated into Ottawa and Montreal sections, would be split at Brockville, with the power from Toronto continuing on the CN with the Montreal section, while a waiting power and crew would take the Ottawa section on the CP branch from Smiths Falls. Eastbound trains would, of course, be combined at Brockville. Here train 45, the Capital, pulls the Ottawa section onto the CP for the waiting FPA4 to lead up the CP. The F units will return to the CN main to take the Montreal section to its destination.
