The last regularly scheduled CN trains through the tunnel in Windsor were about a decade ago, having never photographed one here I didn't think I'd actually get the opportunity to do so again. That changed when the derailment occurred in Sarnia on June 28th, and I took advantage of every opportunity I could to catch those re-routes. Cutting the lawn? Groceries? Nah, those can wait, rare trains are far more important. Here we see CN 326 lead by 5484, 2541 and 8933 as they climb out of the tube on their way to home rails at Little Yard, and eventually London.

  1. I’m still salty I missed this guy here by 40 seconds lol Great shot!

  2. Nicely done with the re-route coverage.

  3. I so know what you’re talking about. Taking off in the middle of having family and friends over because a train is honking downtown. Just not going to miss those good units from yesterday, that are now, at this moment, heading home. Bye Honey, back in a few minutes. Promise.
    Yeah, sure.
