Trackside Log for Tuesday, October 28, 2008

Well it was a cloudy evening after work but when I heard Canadian Pacific train 426 approaching Fenwick I decided to take a photograph of it anyway. It was too dark for slides but I managed to get half decent digital photo.

I guess it's moody or something.

Trackside Log for Sunday, October 19, 2008

Another Sunday at home with the scanner on. This morning I heard Canadian Pacific train 247 obtain a clearance from Brookfield East and decided that I would like to photograph it climbing out from under the Welland Canal. I drove over to Kingsway Street and waited for about 15 minutes.

  • 1141 Welland - CP 247 north - CP 9526-CP 9613

The picture taken I returned home. In the afternoon I heard Canadian Pacific train 426 heading my way and popped out to take its picture.

  • 1520 Fenwick - CP 426 south - CP 6045-SOO 6023

It was a refreshing change to see an SD40-2 and an SD60 on the Hamilton Subdivision. The endless monotony of GE locomotives was getting to me.

Trackside Log for Monday, October 13, 2008

This was Thanksgiving in Canada and a day off work. I was at home in the morning and keeping an ear perked for any Canadian Pacific trains to be coming my way. Before long train 246 could be heard and I went out for a photograph.

  • 1015 Fenwick - CP 246 south - CP 9774

That was all I would see that day. I guess it was enough to be thankful for. Something more interesting than a single AC4400 would have been nice. =)
