CN 551 is assisting the last M331 out of Hamilton - the crew (including RP.CA contributor and moderator Michael DaCosta) is busy preparing to depart after attaching the 4774 and 7080 to the head end. While this was going on, CP 246 was lined down the hill - all you had to do was wait. This is the second CN/CP meet shot I've attained at this location in 15 or so years of trying :) And it was all serendipity - you can't plan operations like this and you of course, have to be there, and I was already in the area. I'll take it.
