An overflying hawk checks out the 4 SD40-2's leading The London Pickup. In a rare move, today was an empty rail train with TWO!! cabooses and 4 units (normal is 2)
Two Alstom rebuilds (8222 and GP38-2 3043) bracket GP38-2 3057 as the Galt Yard Job goes to work
Cold and crisp creates a great exhaust effect as 159 sprints west
Nice of CP to run some big freights in sunlight. 241 was seen by many foamers on a great afternoon for trains
Nice to see an SD40 leading the GE's for a change. The only constant is snow. For what it's worth, 75 cars trail the three units
The -30 degree windchill may partly explain a daylight sighting of 139 east of Galt.
4 weeks ago the river was wide open. Now you could hold a hockey game on it. SD40-2 5902 and CEFX 1057 trail as 8793 slows to set off about 30 multis for Toyota. Thanks for the heads up Jay!
After pioneering the use of ditchlights, CP has now added streetlights to better illuminate the right of way.
There are 268 axles trailing the 2 AC4400's on 159. Most will remain invisible
Light flurries have been a part of Southern Ontario for the last 3 weeks. 242 fans them rather effectively
393 used to be a hot train. today, 45 minutes to travel 15 miles. At least it had a very clean BNSF C44-9 794 in behind( my first Warbonnet)
A little light snow as 424 heads east with an AC4400,ES44, AC4400, 2 GP9 lashup
Only foolishness and the chance to see an 8800 for the first time would motivate a railfan to go out in a freezing rain storm.
