|EFRR 2716 in Phase 1 [Two Tone Red with parabolic curve to nose stripes] paint with IW 7570 in its original IW paint job [Phase 2 will be EFRR inspired] and previously unknown CN Loco #5629, posed outside TQW for website publicity photo. I had often looked at this photo and wondered where the location was and then tonight I realised the tell tale was the corner of the industrial building which has to be TQW warehouse. The track in the foreground of the photo are the tail end of the Hodgson Mill siding. The track with the CN loco on it leads straight in to and through the TQW warehouse. The track with EFRR 2716 and IW 7570 on it is the passing track which runs around the outside of TQW and prevents EFRR having a loading guage restriction point by only running through TQW. I am always on the lookout for more photos of the EFRR so if you live nearby or can visit then please contact EFRR to let them know your coming to arrange a permission slip/liability waiver and please contact me because I would appreciate copies of any photos. Update 11 September 2009. I just received a CD of photos and other information on the EFRR from a contact at Agracel and it shows similar photos to this one from what appears to have been a EFRR Open Day and so I was able to zoom in and find out the number of CN 5629 which must have been loaned to EFRR for the PR event.
