CP 254 comes into Hamilton with CP 6248-6236-5012 for power on the 1st day of another tumultuous month in 2020. This power set has been on CP 254/255 for September to date, so a shot was in order. Hard not to if the power stays on these trains for days on end. The ex-SOO SD60s were common on CP back in 2013-2015 but seemed to drift away for a period of time. They are still not overly common, unless on 254/255 these days! They still look good, especially when they are paired up elephant style!

  1. A great shot Kevin. I’ve never photographed there. Do you walk in from Kay Drage Park?

  2. Nice S bend shot, that has to be one of the shortest signal masts at the far bend.

  3. Thank you folks. @rsmith, yes you can walk in. I’ve exhausted shooting here but it is a great spot for bend shots. I also like the searchlights.

  4. Kevin, looking on Google street view it looks like the gate to the park is closed frequently. Do you walk in from Macklin St. or from the end of Hunt St. by the basilica?

  5. @rsmith: Yes, you enter from Macklin St. The gate is closed on Sundays I believe. However, because of Covid-19, I’m not sure what the deal is with that gate.

  6. OK. Thank you Sir.
