Have you ever got a shot you were personally quite pleased with only to come across a train about a month later much more deserving of the angle? Well, that's what happened to me today. About a month ago I shot the CN spray train crossing the Welland River on its way to Port Rob and thought to myself "well that's pretty neat." Tonight however, detour train 122 with EMDX 1606 on point came into Canada in the early evening hours from Buffalo, and as far as I am concerned is much more deserving of this location. Talk about the pinnacle of the hobby - a detour train (for those not local, CN never runs stacks on the Stamford) with an EMDX demonstrator leader in the soft evening sun. Worth the drive indeed, and I hope you all don't mind the repeated angle.

  1. And northern Ontario!

  2. They detoured trains through both Windsor and Fort Erie.

  3. I didn’t know about the derailment until know. So they had to cut under Lake Erie? Could have used the CASO sub now. ;)

  4. Thanks guys.

    Mike, nice to meet you too.

    Brad, the stack trains have been coming in over at Fort Erie since the derailment in Sarnia. 122 is the usual 148.

  5. Very nice as always James. Why was it detoured?

  6. Excellent-nice to meet you at Merriton!
