With Columbian Carbon providing the backdrop, the 1600 Yard Job proceeds slowly down track AG47 into Triple M Metals. Before coming here, they'd set their train off behind Dofasco, in between Strathearne Ave and Kenilworth Ave (either on track AF31 or AF90) and ran back around their train and then up to the Strathearne Yard area light power. Their train wasn't very big - a couple of hoppers to be cut up and some empty gons for Triple M - but Strathearne Yard was pretty full, so presumably they did not have space for their train until they made some moves. Triple M was the first move here, where they lifted three loaded scrap gons (old Sultran cars). They then tied onto AIM gons on track AG52 in Strathearne Yard and then the crew walked down to the east end of Strathearne Yard where they stayed for some time, resulting in a long period of inactivity. The sun was getting low in the sky at that point so I called it a night.
