After having just finished spotting a long stash of empty autoracks into Chrysler, CN 579 is seen slowly creeping over the Airport road overpass at the end of the North Park Spur as they prepare to run light back through BIT in order to re-couple on to the loaded autoracks which they pulled a couple hours earlier. Timing is 07:24. Generally this local will be nocturnal for the most part as crew is scheduled to go on duty at 23:30 in MacMillan Yard but every so often comes the odd morning when they are still operating under first rays of light (especially this time of year) and I guess I just happened to pick the lucky morning today! Power is CN gp40-2 4713, gp9rm 4028 and out of sight, GMD-1U 1439 + gp9rm 4130.
