The last CN reroute I was able to photograph during the Sarnia/Port Huron tunnel closure was this M362. This was actually the first day of normal operations in Sarnia/Port Huron post derailment; but due to the backlog of trains, they still sent a few more through Windsor. About an hour before this photo was taken, a very nice CP Police officer approached me at the tunnel in Windsor to let me know a reroute had crossed about an hour earlier. With that tip in mind, I started to drive towards Little Yard and the Chrysler Spur to see if VIA was holding them. On my way, I heard a CN crew requesting permission through a foreman's limits on the Chatham Sub over the radio. I made a beeline for the 401 and ended up beating them to Chatham with about 30 seconds to spare. I ended up shooting them one more time in Thamsville before taking the opportunity to explore some CP territory I had not yet been to east of Chatham.
