On Sunday, October 16, 1994, CPR eastbound Detroit-Montreal intermodal freight #508 is seen traversing the north shore of Christie Lake, Ont., near Mile 26 of the Belleville Subdivision. The relatively short 45-platform train is being easily handled by RS-18u's #1831, #1826 and #1817. All were retired in 1997 and 1998, and were not among those RS-18u's that were sold to other roads.

NOTE: It is decades after new RS-18's first hauled piggyback trains between Montreal and Toronto, yet here they are again back on the main line hauling intermodal traffic once again and not looking at all like typical smoky Alcos!
