Great shot Ken, this location is all growing in now and impossible to photograph. The small bridge abutment to the left of the last three engines is the old Partridge St. bridge which has been filled in. Saunders St. is on the right side of the engines running parallel to the tracks.

Good to see the B&M units in the lead. The caption is appropriate for the train dynamics pictured here as well as the B&M which would lose the battle as an independent regional to GTI in 1983,
