Seeing everyone in the railfan community was out yesterday and it was a nice day; I'll hereby answer the call for photos of this huge 11,000 ft train by offering up this example, some a little different. I like to go where it is quiet. So this location at mile 59, we see #246 in a brief clearing just leaving the 'Desjardins' stretch as it rolls toward Hamilton. Second unit CP 9767. The sun was in and out, mostly hazy.
I would imagine Guelph Jct had its share of fans, and Newman Rd; and there sure were a bunch when I passed by Kinnear !!!  Hopefully a good day for all. Nice too the train was only an hour or so later than advertised.

  1. Is THAT where I was? Thanks, Dave. :o ) All the time I have gone there I never knew the street name.

  2. Hunt St overpass? Genius!!

  3. Not long after we shot at Concession 8, Arnold, I heard a trespasser call for Mile 60.14 I believe it was.

  4. I’m a good boy. I turned over a new leaf many years ago. :o )
    I heard them calling about a trespasser and I thought sighting was between Concession 8 and 7 as the train was going south.
    Put a train like that out there as bait and you’re bound to catch somebody!

  5. Glad you made it out. Also glad you weren’t the trespasser around the corner from you because the CP cop was out lookin’ for him!
