This evening I heard Canadian Pacific train 246 obtain a clearance from the Hamilton Subdivision dispatcher from mile 36 to the north siding switch Welland. I took my camera along for my walk with Missy and timed it so I could photograph the train at Foss Road.
It is rather dark at this time in December but I managed to eke out a photograph. Of note is that CP 9713 still wears evidence of the Christmas lights used during its employ as the Holiday Train years earlier.
Later in the evening I heard train 247 north obtain their clearance through town. I took Missy out to watch it pass through in the dark before bed time.

The motive power was from ethanol train 626 from the night of the 27th. Unfortunately all the ethanol trains have been running the Hamilton Subdivision in the dark of late.
