Barely dodging a spoiler cloud, CN 3001 lead IC 2719 and CN 3000 as DPU on 305's train at Bowmanville. I'm not sure exactly how these clouds know exactly where they are not wanted, but they seem really good at appearing at the wrong time. I'm not talking an errant drifter either, no, the sky above was clear (unlike in the background). This bugger formed spontaneously as the train approached. Oh well, almost CF'ed me, but not quite.

Their progress is already waning as YQ has instructed them to hold off getting to Oshawa East as there is a traffic jam in the 'Shwa' due to a dead unit on 306. It cost them about an hour, which is likely not welcomed by a crew that started it's day in Montreal. 1341hrs.
