Canadian Pacific’s OCS heads north along Willsboro Bay with FP9 1401 in charge.
I had a gut feeling they were gonna leave north from Saratoga before the supposed 0800, and that was confirmed when I pulled up to the station at 0645 and they were getting ready to depart. I got a crappy wedge shot at Fort Edward, then went straight to Willsboro as quick as I could to make the long hike along the bay to this spot, hoping I'd have enough time to get out here ahead of the train.
After the long hike into this spot, I had a few minutes to spare before they could be heard blowing for the town of Willsboro. I’ve wanted this shot for a while, this made the long drive up from Connecticut worth it.
