CN L562, with the 2101 on point, is coming ahead off of CP's Rusholme Siding and onto the Trillium Cayuga Spur to head into Feeder for interchange with Trillium. One of my favourite parts about Niagara is the transfer trains, and getting things like a CN train on Trillium trackage with a sign delineating CP's boundary.

  1. Truck “hunting” is normally when a locomotive trucks move laterally and bang on both sides of the rail. It can get pretty loud and bumpy for sure. It only tends to happy when a locomotive is moving at speed. It is not just a GE thing, although I have had more GE’s do it than GM’s and 6 axle units tend to “hunt” more.

  2. Thanks Phil. Yeah, I was told 2101 was “truck hunting” pretty badly yesterday. That was a new term for me. :)

  3. Standard GE cabs..maybe nice to photograph in these days of wide cabs, but they are absolutely awful to operate! BTW nice shot :-)

  4. Thanks railwayguy. I agree, Feeder is an interesting spot. Not a lot of action, but what does go on there is cool and I enjoy the stakeout aspect of the railfanning experience in these parts. My pleasure to get out and share. :)

    Kevin, you might want to act quick on that one. I believe these are going into storage too along with the C40-8M’s.

  5. Very nice James! I still have yet to bag one of these in good light. I got too many wide-cab ones!

  6. As a steam fan from the ‘50’s, I never thought I would say the words, “Yeah, nice to see a standard cab” , let alone look at a colourful diesel ! James, how the decades have changed my thinking. Alway so interesting to see what goes on at Feeder and all the changes in the area . In my early rail photographing days, Feeder was simply an approach to the Welland Canal bridge for west bound Wabash F’s. Many thanks for getting out, and for sharing.

  7. On the note of the standard cab, I was just thinking, it would be a lot more fun if it was ex-NS instead of ex-UP. I believe NS C40-8s would have graced these rails in the past. Perhaps Arnold or others could confirm.

  8. The standard cab GE leading is a nice catch too.

  9. Geez. You really are a scout!!! :o )
