Today I was at home puttering about again. It was a rather nice day again so I left the scanner on in the background. At about 1230 I heard a southbound call out the Boyle mile board. I went up to the Church Street crossing to take a look.
- 1245 Fenwick - CP 246 south - CEFX 1039-CP 9676
Train 426 met train 247 north at Welland Yard. It didn't take very long for the northbound to get to my back yard.
- 1317 Fenwick - CP 247 north - CP 5909-SOO 6022-CP 5750
After watching the train pass behind my house and fending off the bug hordes I went back home to work on my notes. Later on in the afternoon train 426 spoke up and delivered a track release at mile 35 of the Hamilton Subdivision. Since the train was a mere nine miles away I took Missy down to Sumbler Road for a photograph.
After Missy was finished howling along with 5951's horn we headed home for our walk.
