The route is set, York 1 into the yard  as the second of 3 westbounds approaches the plant at Snider. It's moments like this where I'm reminded on the simplicity of simple steel wheels on steel rails that joins the country from ocean to ocean and happily the Arctic Ocean as well again. Symmetry in steel.

  1. I spent many hrs parked at the A building waiting for the dual to pull a track and of course it was first come first serve unless the crew was running out of time. They rarely like to bring trains in on York 2 or 3 unless they have a track for the train right away. York 2 tends to be saved for outbound trains

  2. …and lots of nights parking at the A Building waiting for a track I suspect. I was a bit surprised the the RTC sent them all in on York 1. The third was fouling the plant for 40 minutes, and was still there when I left. York 2 was always a nice way in from my Receiving Control days. Always odd to look down towards Hwy 7 and see 3 inbounds (the Halton too) on Saturday mornings

  3. Sniff, sniff. Bringing back lots of memories of being lined into York 1…the end of lots of long journeys home.
