Thanks to a heads up from a friend the night before saying 244 was through Elkhart I knew that if NS didn't screw around it would put 244 in Windsor right at sunrise. This would be the 3rd of 3 locations I would end up being able to shoot him at between Windsor and London. While chasing I heard over the scanner that they would be tieing down at Lobo siding and the crew van would be there to pick them up. Well that sure was the unfortunate case ...or so I thought. After watching 141 roll by at the East end of Lobo, just as I was about to leave I heard the low rumble of an EMD throttling up. Sure enough it was this guy on the move again. Shit there was one spot I wanted to shoot but I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to make it, well better try anyways. With a quick run over a hill and through some bushes surprisingly enough I was able to beat him to one of only a few US&S bidirectional sets left on the Windsor sub.

  1. Just west of Wonderland Rd in London. Nice shot, reminds me of the signals that used to be on the Galt sub in the OCS.

  2. Yessir! Glad I was able to nab an Eastbound here in good light.
