After stopping at Glenridge, CN 330 has gotten back underway up the 1.6% grade into Niagara Falls, passing Garner Road. While leaser power has been common on CN 330, the trailer doesn't show any indications of being leased variety. CN 2145 leads the way, with BNSF 9916 trailing. Older EMD's of any variety under foreign class 1 ownership are pretty rare sightings here nowadays. I don't remember the late 2013-early 2015 foreign power craze bringing any Niagara bound on CN, so this is quite remarkable. 9916 looks like an early EMD relic, but in reality it's just less than 20 years old. All those years hauling coal trains in the midwest have not done the paint well. CN 2145 of course has BNSF heritage as well, so these two units likely have had their share of meets. The AC traction from 9916 seemed to provide a noticeable boost to 330's trip up hill, and the chase to Clifton afterwards was almost unsuccessful because of it.

  1. Caught it on 422 today, and thought it was an ex-UP from a far. Has seen its share of sun.
