I was headed out to shoot CP 651 when T69 went eastbound so I decided I may as well wait for it to return. I was sitting in my usual spot when I decided to make a move to this location. This is a beautiful spot to shoot but one takes a chance with cars and trucks biting at your butt. With Brians Farm Supply being closed and lighter than normal traffic, I waited for T69 to get its clearance and parked until I heard the detector go off and wandered out on to the bridge to avoid extra waiting time. With the sun out from behind the clouds and the train accelerating up the grade, CP 3018 makes a nice entrance through the Puslinch countryside.
