Considering how long I stood on the bank of the Welland River watching the carp, I figured I would post this photo for the world to see.  Good old CP; hurry up and wait.  They worked Aberdeen, worked Kinnear, met 247 somewhere in Hamilton and may have been delayed by them, and had 25 mph slow orders from about MP 34 to Welland.  The train finally showed up about 2 hours later then I anticipated.  I've got to stop being so optimistic about estimating times.  CP 7010 and CP 8102 just fit between the trees on the Welland River bridge.  Notice how much longer the SD70ACu is compared to the GE.  CP 255 was done their work and waiting in Welland Yard for 246 to clear the north siding switch.

  1. Thanks James. That explains it! I didn’t mind the wait.

  2. This may explain the two hours later than anticipated/hurry up and wait issue.

    13:35 – arr Desjardin
    14:35 – set off coil cars at Aberdeen
    15:05 – meet 247 at Locke
    15:40 – working Kinnear
    17:04 – arr Vinemount

    I guess if anything, it made for better light at your end.

  3. Nice shot and fine locomotive. Worth the wait!
