Stalling at Acton the previous night due to CN 5258’s engine failing on the westbound run, trailing units 2635, 4125, and GMTX 2325 were sent from Mac to assist the train westbound from Georgetown where they were sitting waiting for the rescue power. They pulled from a stop after VIA 84 cleared the station at Georgetown as they got their light to proceed onto the Guelph Subdivision. Knowing the BC Rail C40-8M will lead east in daylight, I was finally motivated to shoot something 10 minutes from my house. Here, CN L533 is rolling through Mosborough Ontario just west of Guelph with about 5000 feet of train in tow for Mac Yard and the BC Rail up front. Interesting to know that 4125 and GMTX 2325 were isolated both ways of the trip possibly for backup power if 4607 failed.

  1. Great shot! What a power set indeed!

  2. Yeah Kevin it was definitely weird seeing them return with the mixture of 6 and 4 axel units scattered in the consist

  3. Really nice photo Liam.

  4. Great job with this pic. I’ve always liked that old house in the background. It also gives the scene positive ID.
