One of my last trip to the Berm before spring took hold.... tick city this place is.. not worth it.. let an IC SD70 class leader sooth your tick bites. Haven't been very many of these around anymore and the rumours are flying as to why. I went for as many as these as I could when they happened.

  1. LOL John!

  2. Thanks Steve and Jamie.

  3. If anyone has “homestead rights” on this territory, it’s the senior men like Mercer, Mooney, and myself (more than 45 years and I have the slides to prove it!). As far as I’m concerned, that Host guy is okay and he can visit any time he wants.

  4. Well, nice to close the book on that one. Thanks James

  5. Jamie,

    1027 had trailed on a 314 on the 25th (blade loads to some place in NY) I seem to recall low fuel being the reason for getting set off at Stuart

  6. This was the last one, July 2018:

  7. Sorry, date should read June 17, 2018.

  8. Nice shot, Steve. 1005 led X384 on June 23, 2018. Lighting less than ideal by the time it got around here.

    Somewhat odd.. On November 25, 2017 I came across 1027 just idling all by itself in Stuart. Never did understand or figure out why and have never since a six axle just hanging out there like that since. Didn’t have a camera back then, though. Just a cell grab.

    Larry, those cars are the best part of 421 and 422. Very few trains on the Grimsby Sub, but at least there is something somewhat unique on two of them.

  9. Larry, they are indeed auto parts. From Buffalo Stamping plant to Oakville Assembly.

    A regular feature of CN 422.

    Snake I drove myself.

  10. Mr Host – did you have permission to be on my turf? I don’t see any faxed-in documentation.

  11. The coloured box cars make for a nice train too. :-) They look like car parts boxes. Containers would seem a natural for most of that with the larger stuff going in a box possibly?
