For the love of trains

For the love of trains

Sean Harte loves trainspotting with his grandfather Clay Beers. Beers brings his grandson to the old railroad bridge at Stephenson Road and Lakeshore Road twice a week from Whitby for an opportunity to watch the trains. Harte, who is just ten years of age, has an incredible knowledge of each and every train on the line. He is animated as he describes today’s observation. “I saw a CN train and it was going so fast and the engine was SD75-I,” he says. This is a diesel-electric locomotive engine which, according to Wikipedia, was produced by General Motors Electro-Motive Division between 1996 and 1999. “Sean has been interested in trains since he was four years old,” says his grandfather. Harte adds, “And when I was a toddler, I loved trains as well.”
