Don't forget Capreol, Ontario. They maintain the Budd Cars used on the Sudbury-White River RDC train.

I used to go by the Silvis shop on BN. They had several CN MLW Draper Taper units. I also saw some ex Conrail B23-7s. I thought this was neat because that is what CR used in New England, where I am from.

silvis has many old engines you can see and photograph from highway 5 .
mt. vernon has fewer and you can get closer but chain link fence.
