Today I left work at Welland a bit early so I could take some work home with me. It was a beautiful afternoon and shortly after arrival I heard the sound of approaching horns. Missy and I dashed out to Chantler Road for a photograph of what turned out to be Canadian Pacific train 246 south.
Then it was back home to finish up my work so I could enjoy the long weekend.
Later in the evening I was still listening to the scanner when I heard the detector at mile 27.8 of the Canadian Pacific Hamilton Subdivision go off with a "system not working" message. Apparently train 426 south went into emergency on top of it. After regaining their air they continued through town. I figured although it was getting dark I'd take Missy out to see it anyway.
- 2000 Fenwick - CP 426 south - CP 8578-SOO 6047
After it passed by I went back inside. Later on I heard train 254 south approaching and figured, "Hey, why not go have a look?"
- 2316 Fenwick - CP 254 south - CP 9562-CP 9559
And there it was. CP 9562 was back yet again.
