This morning I heard a northbound approaching town so I walked with Missy behind my house to take a look. As the train eased around the curve toward me I was impressed by how colourful the train was.
The Delaware & Hudson GP38-2 was a rather nice bonus. After a friendly thumbs-up from the conductor Missy and I headed back to the warmth of the indoors.
During the afternoon the snow began to fall. I left the scanner on in the background and eventually heard the Canadian Pacific Hamilton Subdivision dispatcher talking to a southbound. I took Missy over to Sumbler road for a photograph in the snow.
Then we headed back home. It's a good thing I live here. Photographing Hamilton Subdivision trains certainly won't keep you busy.
Just as we were returning from our evening walk a northbound was making some noise. We watched it pass by from the back of my property.

Canadian Pacific is back to running the ethanol trains while either I'm not home or it's dark out.
