The roulette wheel keeps on spinning, as a pair of BNSF GE's 883-829 are on the point of NS St. Thomas to Buffalo train 328 passing through Brantford on a cool November morning. The existence of trains 327/328 on the NS ledger was to provide timely service for Ford's Talbotville plant. But long before the auto maker built that facility, predecessor Wabash RR had procured other on-line customers. Those covered hoppers may have come from one of several elevators along the former Paynes or Cayuga Subdivision's, or from the Thamesville elevator on the Chatham Sub.
