I've been told by a crew member that the pushing on the Hamilton Sub typically takes place at night these days - for 142 and 247 I think. However, both trains have been running late at times recently with the winter weather, making for a chance to see the pushers on the mainline on their way to help. Which is lucky for me - I missed a shot of 142 here by mere minutes but then heard the pushers would be coming once the crew was ready to go. Here, TH41 is on its way to meet a very late and waiting 142 at Desjardins. This was the 15:00 crew's first order of business on this Sunday afternoon. 254 would follow southbound mere minutes after TH41 passed through.
