Mornings were always a good time on CP back in the early to mid 2000’s, with typically 3-4 trains through the junction within a 2-3 hour period. “Sprint” frame trains 141/142 through much of the 2000’s were pretty much the hottest trains running on the Galt subdivision and loaded train 142 was the best catch of the two considering it was loaded rather then simply empty flat cars like its counterpart. Running as a fairly light train and with no turning facilities at both St. Thomas and Oshawa. Control cab sets were typically the power for the train. While power set 1117 and 3057 were the normal power for the train it was possible to get another set filling in. September 5, 2001 was one of those days as I watched 3096/1102 pass my vantage point up on the hill at Guelph Jct. A lot has changed in the past 18 years at the junction since I framed this train and even the train today doesn’t exist.

  1. Nice nostalgic pic. I framed a star for you.

  2. Nice one, I always liked this set compared to that ugly 3057.
