I was a little too late in getting a shot of a train at begin/end CTC signal 104.5 before the inevitable occurred. I took the signals here a bit for granted and was waiting for a good leader in good light before bothering to shoot a train with the 1960s era searchlights here. That mentality backfired on me as CP put up replacement LED Safetran "vaders" up at the location a couple of weeks ago. They haven't cut the signals over yet, but unfortunately the older searchlight signals here are not long for the world. So today when I heard 235 was running a bit later than usual it was a no brainer for me to shoot them here so that I at least have a shot at this location before the searchlights are removed.
