This was an interesting set of moves. The SOO SD60's had come west on an empty tank train, 641, earlier in the morning and were waiting at Jefferson Ave. for a meet with CP 624 lead by CP 6038. When 624 arrived, 641's power detached from their train and pulled into Walkerville yard where SOO 6027 would be dropped. CP 6038 uncoupled from train 624 and was then left in the yard and SOO 6027 was added as the new leader in front of the 3 ICE SD40-2's. SOO 6062 then headed back to train 641 and rode into the US solo, while SOO 6027 departed east with 624's train. I was much more encouraged to sit trackside in inclement weather when these latchups were still common.
