1987 would be the final year we lived in Chatham ( in November we moved to Bright's Grove, as CSX began to alter their Canadian operations). The first group of F40PH were in service, so I had stepped up my recon activities to catch the fading fleet of cab's and boosters. Once again, on a calm sunny day, I'm at the diamond crossing of the CN Chatham Sub and the CPR Windsor Sub. Train 74 is due and when I hear him at Prairie Siding, I get into position on the Windsor Sub, so as to obtain some elevation and keep the image 'clean'. Another single unit/6 car consist in the Corridor, as the aging FP9 drifts by the Absolute signal and clatters through the automatic interlocking. Happily, this engine exists today, on the Boone and Scenic Valley tourist operation, at Boone IA painted in C&NW colours.
