SOO 4410, along with CP 3134 is curving southwest on the Mactier Wye at West Toronto, running as train T15. Apparently, the trailing unit (which was leading west at the time) had issues when the crew was working the West end of Lambton Yard, so they decided to wye the power in order to have 4410 facing west. Hearing this on the scanner as I was hanging out near the old stockyards shooting Milton GO trains, I knew I was in for a treat. I scrambled over to some nice searchlight signals on the connecting track from the Mactier Sub to the Galt Sub, and set up. As far as I know, the only trains that use this track on a weekly basis are 235 (Spence to Windsor), and some CN-CP transfers, both of these happening in basically pitch dark, so I was even more excited to see something else use it, especially in almost perfect lighting. I'm not usually happy to hear when a unit has issues, but considering the result of this one I can't say I'm unhappy at all.
