Trackside Log for Sunday, January 31, 2010

On my way to buy milk I heard on the scanner that train 246 had just met train 255 in Smithville. Earlier I'd missed 255 which was led by SOO 6058. I had time to get the milk, stop at home for my camera and then head out for a photograph. I decided to take Missy over to Chantler Road for this one.

  • 1038 Fenwick - CP 246 south - CP 8796-STLH 5651

The St. Lawrence & Hudson SD40-2 was pretty grungy looking. Still, it was nice to see one of the few that remain still running around.

Later in the evening I was getting ready to take Missy for a walk when I heard train 427 north obtain a clearance from Welland Yard to Smithville to meet 426 south. It was getting rather dark but I decided to try for a photograph anyway. We walked out behind my house to see it.

  • 1736 Fenwick, ON - CP 427 north - CP 5920-CP 8888

Missy and I then continued our walk. Shortly after arriving home (in the dark) train 426 came through town with SOO 6031 leading. Four trains with GM locomotives on them is something of a miracle lately.
