Well this was an interesting meet to see. Though it looks like the two trains will converge in the intersection, they are actually both eastbound. SOR is shoving, while CP is pulling ahead. Crews from both trains readying to throw switches. CP is presumably going to pull across Ottawa Street and shove back west to work the interchange. If you're going to get a CN-CP meet in industrial Hamilton, this is a pretty likely spot. I saw SOR and CP meet here a couple of times, and came within seconds of a meet shot with CN and CP earlier this month. Funnily enough, the arrival of the second train was evidently enough for the driver of the black car, pictured turning around to find an alternate route.

  1. Ah there it is! I couldn’t find it using generic search terms. Would’ve linked it in the caption

  2. Great! I’ve seen a meet here about four times, one on camera as it was pretty good. I’d certainly do differently now but this is what I chose to showcase about 10 years back when I posted this:
