Well file this day under unique. 331 had just worked both Parkdale Yard and Stuart street, and is pictured here shoving off the cowpath through Snake into Aldershot to make a lift there too. Can't say this is a move I've ever seen before. The Parkdale thing threw me off enough as it was. From what I can gather from observation and from what I am hearing from others, 422 dropped a unit there (potentially its leader - 8943) and some cars I think, and at the very least 331 lifted its leader (and maybe the cars?) which became its third unit. 422 worked Stuart while 331 was in Parkdale, and then 422 worked Aldershot while 331 was in Stuart. You can see the tail end of 422 sticking out of Aldershot in this shot. It's the unique and unusual that make things interesting for us railfans, that's for sure.

  1. They took the cowpath onto the Dundas then shoved back to Aldershot trough Bayview and Snake. I got to Snake just as the tail end of the train was coming under the bridge over to the cemetery. Power followed soon after, which is this shot. :)

  2. Power wyed at Bayview I assume?
