Getting across Ontario making decent time, 5626 is solo in charge of 72 cars of loaded windmill blades from Quebec on route to interchange in the Chicago land area. No slow orders between Mac Yard and Paris for this train making it a fast run until his first meet with G846 just after the slow order at Paris Junction (all trains do not exceed 30 mph is what I heard on the day of). After that meet occurred, these loaded blades were doing nothing but crawling until 434 bypassed him on the south track near the hotbox detector at mile 40. Finally, after cruising at a speed rate of 20 minutes for every 5 miles, X319 is working up to the mile a minute speed as it flies over the CP St Thomas Sub just west of Woodstock VIA at Carew.

  1. Thanks boys. @jknott86, the clouds were on me too, on and off sun for like an hour.

  2. That crawling was painful progress to watch on ATCS, and it cost me sun on this train at Poplar haha. Nice shot.

  3. Nice Liam! Get the SD75s when you can.
