Trackside Log for Wednesday, March 31, 2010

I had just arrived at home for lunch and turned on the scanner when I heard Canadian Pacific train 246 asking a foreman for some track. I determined that the train was just north of me and took Missy up the road for a photograph.

  • 1256 Fenwick - CP 246 south - CP 8757-CP 6036

After a couple pictures were taken I returned home to eat lunch.

I spent the afternoon working from home and kept the scanner on. Later in the afternoon I heard another southbound call out the Smithville mile board. I let it get a bit closer before taking Missy out for another photograph.

  • 1540 Fenwick - CP 426 south - CP 5935-CITX 3078-CP 5775

I had previously seen the CITX SD40-2 when it was GCFX 3078 on CSX in Fairport, New York. I wasn't in a very good position to photograph the CITX SD40-2 so I drove ahead to Welland Yard for another shot at the train.

  • 1556 Welland - CP 426 south - CP 5935-CITX 3078-CP 5775

After a wave to the engineer and a few photographs I turned for home and continued working. Before long it was time for Missy's evening walk. Just as I was thinking about going I heard the sound of a horn approaching. I picked up my camera, got Missy and headed for the Church Street crossing.

  • 1712 Fenwick - CP Job 3 north - CP 8250-CP 8246

Then Missy and I resumed our walk through the Lions Club park. After our walk Job 3 returned as light power from delivering the pipe load to Cappco in Smithville.

  • 1752 Fenwick - CP Job 3 south - CP 8246-CP 8250

This time I just watched it pass by.
