After cooling their heels in the hole for close to two hours, CP 142 finally arrives for a meet with 643 at Spicer. With 124 cars, 643 would not fit into any other siding between here and Toronto other than Oshawa, and the RTC didn't think they'd make Oshawa without delaying 142. With 142 also over siding length, UP 3732 West got to put the newly extended siding here to use. This is the new norm for the Belleville Sub... longer trains and longer delays. 1256hrs.

  1. Nice shot, Richard. SD90 leading is very nice.. let alone not being a CP :)

  2. How’s the coffee?

  3. Does CP 142 often have foreign power like this or is this a rarity?

  4. Richard? Subtle Hostie… nice :)

    Coffee was pretty good Delic, and necessary… worth the drive into town :P

    Kevin, the UP units are on 643, but I don’t think one can say that either regularly get foreign power. Stuff just seems to show up on anything.
