Trackside Log for Thursday, February 18, 2010

This morning I was returning from my daily walk with Missy when I heard the sound of southbound horns. Just as I was getting to the back of my property Canadian Pacific train 246 south pulled around the bend.

  • 0845 Fenwick - CP 246 south - CP 9672-CP 6069

Once the train passed by we went home so I could get ready for work.

Trackside Log for Wednesday, February 17, 2010

While getting ready for work train 246 south came through town. I watched from my house as it passed and recognised the CITX SD40-2 that I'd seen heading north not long ago.

  • 0830 Fenwick - CP 246 south - CP 5916-CITX 2783

After it went by I left for work.

Trackside Log for Friday, February 12, 2010

Today, while working from home, I heard Canadian Pacific train 255 north obtain a clearance to proceed off the Canadian National Stamford Subdivision in Brookfield and into the siding in Welland Yard. Since the lead locomotive was a now rare SD40-2 I decided the train warranted a photograph. Once the train acquired its clearance to proceed north of Welland Yard I took Missy over to Farr Street to see it.

  • 1206 Fenwick - CP 255 north - CP 5916-CITX 2783-CP 5749

Subsequent to my photographs I returned home to continue working.

A short time later, while making lunch, train 247 north also obtained a clearance. I walked Missy up to the Foss Road crossing for a look.

  • 1416 Fenwick - CP 247 north - CP 8536-CP 8844

Once again I returned home to get back to work. Well, lunch was first priority.
