There were very few days that train 71, Toronto-Windsor, warranted more than 2 engines or 3 cars. Saturday was considered a slow day ( in between busy Friday's and Sunday's ). Taking advantage of a crystal clear late October morning, and the availability of the older motive power, I waited patiently for train 71 to arrive town. CN is getting ready to build the connecting track over to C&O's Subdivision No.2 so that freights between Windsor and Toronto can begin using the former Conrail CASO Sub via Fargo. Prior to the changeover to OCS clearances, a new Operator's station will be erected (behind me) and be called CN Chatham East. It would be built twice because vandals torched the first attempt. I have photos of both versions, and the burned out remains. So keep watching!
