I thought this was a pretty standard-issue photo angle in Sarnia unit I looked at the aerial.  I don't think I'd venture this far off the public road for a shot nowadays.  Looking every bit like a shortline railroad's shop, the CSX shop area is quite quaint even if the industrial area surrounding it is far from it. Train D724 has just finished their work and CSXT 2697 and 2561 have been parked in front of the shop to wait for their next assignment.  The "bright future" paint scheme sure looks good now that the drab "dark future" scheme has taken over.  Chessie was better, but you've got to take what you get.

  1. And there it is……

  2. I love “Cripes!” It makes me laugh every time. It must be a word of your generation.

  3. Hey it’s a family venue, what did you want me to say ??

  4. Cripes! You sound like one of my wife’s Uncles. I affectionately refer to him as Uncle Cripes.

  5. Cripes, when I saw the thumbnail I thought it was a winter shot !

  6. Love it. The all white ballast gave the line a unique look that over time has had added regular ballast reducing this look. This photo captures it perfectly as I remember it.
