C93 lands on Canadian Soil with a pair of SD40-2's in the lead, thankfully (photographically speaking) this transfer often has good NS yard power instead of the dreaded GE monotony. The boys would take the CASO to drop off their train.

My daughter decided she wanted to have her Birthday party at Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls this year and as my kids get older, I just leave and go watch trains instead of hang around all day turning into a prune in the wavepool.  Since Niagara falls has almost nothing to note train wise these days  I spent the morning in Buffalo to see some good US action then on the way home waited for C93 before going back to GWL for dinner plans. I looked forward to this trip all spring and was able to make the most of it. With luck I'll be back next year. This vantage point is easy as long as you ask for permission from the adjacent property owner, if around they were quite friendly and willing to give permission - it's the used car sales lot kitty corner to "Courtwright street".

    Here is your sign James :)

  2. Thanks for all that info, Steve. Much appreciated

  3. Station Name Sign. As opposed to a mileboard.

  4. SNS??

  5. James – what you have in your photo is the CP “sns” which in my pic is behind me (and all grown in the weeds in summer) which faces parallel the tracks not perpendicular. CP style is to have a ‘mileboard’ one mile out and the SNS facing tracks.

    I believe the SNS in your photo denotes the location of the “NYC/PC/CR then CP CASO station which last saw use for the budd cars in early 80′s and was torn down not long thereafter.

    Now the CP “mileboard” at this location in my photo is kind of odd.. but whatever.. just a curiosity. Perhaps just used out of convenience. Clearly it’s not ’1 mile’ to the station but probably there just because it’s the closest spot it can be placed on Canadian soil. The fact that CP controlled the CASO after sold to CN/CP in Niagara lends to the CP signage in the area.

    You can see both stations here in Arnold’s photo:

    The sign in your photo, which I’ve seen in a few of mine over the years may or may not still be there, I did not venture in the bushes to look this time. Also, for Arnold (if he’s watching) the owners told me they re-used some of the stone from Bridgeburg stations’ foundation handed over by CN crews who did work some time ago, the owners re-used it for landscaping I was told.

  6. Looks like they added the CN side to the other side this summer, in addition to trimming the trees back a fair bit http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=37632

  7. I think I was told once that is the PC/CR style. I personally don’t know but that’s what I was told.

  8. Btw is that Fort Erie sign facing me a cp variant? The CN sign is on the other side.
