For a railfan my new home is a pretty prime spot, I can stroll out my back yard and catch a fairly unique operation, the problem is trying to time your catch as the CSX tends to sneak up on you.

One of CSX Transportation's few Canadian operations, an industrial job originating in Sarnia approaches St.Clair Blvd. in Corunna after just servicing DuPont to the North of town. 

This particular job uses whats left of the CSX Sarnia Subdivision, which runs all the way to Chatham, but is facing abandonment on the Southern portion if a new operator cannot be found in the coming months. 

Note: The southern portion of the line South of Wallceburg is owned by the Municipality of Chatham-Kent, but the rail has been sold to CP, if an agreement for operation is not made shortly CP can claim the rail and rip it up.
