After finishing the night shift at CP Quebec street, a 15 minute walk over to the cn was always in order before heading home. today would be a nice surprise all round. we started off with two eb freights, one run threw with crew change, the other tying up in the yard at Egorton street. Next  eb and wb passenger trains made up of RDC,s. Besides the tie gang working, a ballast train made up of a single GP9 and about 12 orange ballast cars headed east. just as the ballast train cleared the west bound Amtrak with two F40s and 10 cars made its appearance.  And now our picture. CN work extra RS18 3113 has finely been given permission to proceed. The unit will go along the north shop lead past the car department, then back up on the south side of the London auxiliary back across rectory street to pick up its train of gondolas, an american crane and transfer caboose. The gondolas where filled with large corrugated pipes. The work extra headed east to parts unknown as i headed home for some sleep. a nice morning spent at CN and there constable only stopping to say good morning.
