JUNE 2020: Stephen Host explores Canadian National yards and terminals across Ontario seeking the last active GMD-1 switchers. These uniquely Canadian locomotives have been briefly revived to perform the work they do best switching out yards and working local trains. We take a swing down to Cape Cod where vintage New Haven FL9s once again run on home rails pulling seasonal excursion trains. Mike Sadovnick takes us on a tour of Hollywood’s movie railroad the Fillmore & Western, while photographer Elrond Lawrence shares the excitement of railroading in and around Los Angeles.
