Here we see CN detour train 326 lead by 5484, 2541 and 8933 heading up the Chrysler Spur minutes before he hits the Chatham Sub. for London. This once lightly used branch line experienced quite the increase in traffic over the two weeks that the tunnel in Sarnia was closed. On top of the 2-4 trains per day, another 4-6 were added, testing the jointed rail at the curves. It was a fun experience chasing these trains as they offered a variety of power and freight that rarely if ever comes to Windsor anymore (seeing frame cars here again was choice), and I got to meet some new railfans/ hangout with old ones. Some good times indeed.
