While the lash up wasn’t the most impressive, it’s always nice catching dimensional loads near the head end, not to mention a GO coach on the tail end. The late day lighting doesn’t hurt either :) Here we see train 422 slowing for a meet with local 551, once the dimentionals clear the passing train the eastbound will notch up to attack the Halton Hills.

  1. Coil cars for buffers.. very nice. And I love the boxcar sticking out from the industry. Very model railroad like..”yep, there’s a car in there”. ;)

  2. Depending on the type of dimensional load being carried they are required to be at the head end of the train. Also again depending on the load, if a train with a DIM is passing another train, one train has to be stopped and the one moving has to slow to 10 mph until the DIM has passed.
