Things seemed pretty busy for Trillium when I was down in the area earlier this month. After shooting 564 rescuing 538/meeting 143 at Robbins, I found Trillium working Feeder Yard around 0900, building a train of grain hoppers for Port Colborne. They departed not long after, working WH Yard briefly along the way. This yard too had quite a few grain hoppers kicking around in it. Making the slow and steady trek south to the Port, they made a setoff of grain hoppers at the old Robin Hood mill that originated off of CP. There, they lifted CN-originated hoppers off of a siding for the Port Colborne Grain Terminal and/or ADM (I am not sure which they were for, or perhaps both). It was a really windy day, and unfortunately the wind was doing its best from preventing me getting a really smoky ALCO shot. Later that day I would see CP drop another big string of grain hoppers for Trillium at Feeder Yard, shown here.

  1. Thanks everyone. Was my first time being able to shoot Trillium, though I did explore the line down into Port Colborne some time ago and had a few ideas in mind with respect to what I hoped to do when the opportunity came.

  2. Great shot Jamie! I have to believe that some of those old, reliable Alco based, 251 powered end cabs will outlive us all!

  3. Very nice, Jamie – I like the angle that you’ve shot this at.

  4. Nice job on this, James.
