Trackside Log for Thursday, February 24, 2011

I was at home with a migraine today. By the afternoon I was finally getting rid of it. I turned the scanner on and before long heard a southbound ethanol train nearing town. I took Missy out to River Road to see it.

  • 1443 Fenwick - CP 626 south - CP 8633-CP 5965-SOO 6029-CP 8750-CP 8512

The weather wasn't great but I managed a photograph. The train set off CP 5965 and CP 8512 in Welland Yard before continuing to Buffalo, New York. That manoeuvre lasted for about an hour. At any rate, we returned home and soon heard train 254 call out the mile board at Smithville. Missy and I walked outside for a photograph.

  • 1628 Fenwick - CP 254 south - CP 9714-ICE 6436-CITX 3073

Again, the light was suboptimal but I managed some pictures. CP 9714 is another former holiday train locomotive and the remnants of its Christmas light decorations was plainly visible.
