After a fun chase from Copetown to Paris, things became even more rewarding as CN 391 began slowing down as it crossed the Grand River bridge in Paris on the Dundas Subdivision as seen here.

The lengthy train would eventually come to a stop at the Market Street crossing in Paris to allow VIA Rail #73 to scoop it. This gave photographers ample time to enjoy the consist that included;  6027, GT 5809, Conrail’s 6660 and 6751. Conrail SD45-2 6660 was on lease to power-short CN while SD50 6751 was working-off horsepower hours owed to CN at the time. Once 73 had cleared Pairs West, CN 391 eventually got the light to proceed westward as pictured here and man did that sound great.
