Returning home from our trip we stopped at Coteau for CN 308, watched helplessly from the restaurant window as a CNish looking GP38-2W worked an industry in Cornwall and then shot it parked and backlit next to a fast food joint after we finished lunch, finishing off with shooting CN 376 coming into Belleville.
(map) Coteau is the junction of the CN Valleyfield sub which connects the CN Kingston sub to the CSX Montreal sub, the CN Kingston sub, and the CN Alexandria sub to Ottawa. It is just a few minutes East of the Ontario/Quebec border, just off exit 12 of highway 20.
CN #308 pulls through Coteau station with a pair of 8800s.
A westbound Via passes through Coteau.
Cornwall is about 30 km into Ontario from the Quebec border coming out of Montreal on the CN Kingston sub.
(map) CN and CP are roughly parallel through Belleville. The CN Kingston sub and the CP Belleville sub head through the city, crossing just East of the city where the Belleville sub swings North to Smiths Falls.
CN #376 pulls into Belleville yard with a pair of 8800s.
