The sound of a train horn from my home from where I have never heard a horn made me wonder if CP was lifting the Hydro One dimensional car and caboose from the spur leading to the Trafalgar facility spur. A line that has seen two transformer deliveries in the last three years. As luck would have it they were lifting the empty car, and are seen here crawling northbound at Britannia Road, running on a very weedy and rusty track.

  1. I’ve often wondered about that spur. Normally CP just uses it for storage as it connects with the transload facility. I figured they would have used it for the load coming from Hamilton.

  2. That would have been the transformer load. This was the empty returning.

  3. One ran down about a week or two ago…
