How many daily trains run through Delson, Quebec, just south of Montreal? And secondly, are there any accessible spots for viewing the yard especially where they keep the engines?

How many daily CN trains run through Delson, Quebec just south of Montreal? Are they mostly locals in this area?

Actually Delson is also at the end of CN's Massena Spur from Brossard. Since this line really doesn't go anywhere there won't be much traffic however.

You're right, I should have said "Delson's activity is on the CP line"!!!

Not too much activity,around 4 or 5 trains a day in average,and also few ATM on the week,by tha AMT,the Only way to make a round trip by the train,from Montreal,it's by the 12h20 departure from Montreal and the train come back from Candiac at 13h45,by going to Candiac,if your lucky,you will be able to acces to the cab of the control car and get a nice view,by crossing Mercier bridge,you get a spectacular view like that

At St-Constant,near by,you can visit the Canadian railway museum,called "Exporail" where you can see some good stuff and also,make a model train ride and a tramway ride..

form the rolling stock parked around,jsut eats of St-Catherine,you can see from the train 2 GP38 and a caboose,number of the engine,3024 and 3099
