CP 255 had pretty decent power. Too bad the SD40-2 wasn't in the lead. Oh wait... Change of plans. 255 had arrived in Welland with CP 9808 leading in the morning, and its radiator went on a protest. Many hours later, 5966 is leading the power in the opposite direction (east) to Brookfield, where they will be able to wye the power so 5966 can lead 255 to Windsor. The crew wasted no time, and has gotten up to track speed in less than half a mile after leaving O'Reilly's yard. In second is CSX (ex Seaboard) 8539, and 9808 with a steaming radiator in third. In about 40 minutes, 5966 will be in the lead again heading west ripping through the level crossing at Philips Road. 255's power coupled to the train shortly after that, and headed towards Hamilton.
