In a 7 mile stretch between Hamilton and  Burlington, the area is host to five Subdivisions.  Four CN &  one CP.  They are CN's Oakville Sub, Halton Sub, Grimsby Sub and Dundas Sub. CP is the Hamilton Sub.

 More than 75 trains run through in a 24 hour period. The best times to see the trains in the morning is from 6 am to 10 am. In the afternoon from 12 pm till 2 pm and again from 4 pm till 8 pm. With that said.... anytime time is train time! For those with scanners, talking hot box detectors will give you advanced notice if anything is coming your way. 

 A Google Maps link of the area is provided below. You can also get the local weather forecast via the Weather Network link as well.  Many local railfans inhabit the Spring Gardens bridge off of Plains Rd. and they are all a friendly bunch that can answer all your questions.
