Trackside Log for Saturday, August 16, 2008

Was I hearing that correctly?  Did that clearance actually say that Canadian Pacific train 427 north actually had an SD90MAC leading?  Train 427 originates in Buffalo, New York.  The SD90MACs aren't supposed to be permitted into the United States.  I quickly dashed out to Farr Street to check this out.

  • 1335 Fenwick - CP 427 north - CP 9142-CP 9107-HCRY 3013

OK, that was a groovy train.  Not only did it have a pair of SD90MACs, which it shouldn't, it had a Huron Central GP40-2W.  Fantastic!  The next train I saw this fine Saturday wasn't nearly as interesting, but I photographed it anyway.

  • 1815 Fenwick - CP 426 south - CP 9825-CP 9822

Nope, definitely less groovy.
