On the last weekend of  August, I found myself at one of my favourite locations. It's been made well known that these mills, which once served the railway are becoming fewer and fewer as time rolls on. Falling between Chatham and the still busy farming community of Kent Bridge, Arkwood has become a 'disarray' around this area on the Windsor Subdivision. At least that was what the owner, arriving on the scene, informed me. Words like junk', eyesore', and 'garbage'. Having said that, the weather could not have been more perfect to see 141. Just like the glory days of railroading where the siding was still in place and traffic was abundant at Arkwood, it shows how much times have changed and the possible bleak outcome that the future holds for the mill. The bright spot was that 141 was led by military unit 6644. Although having photographed this unit before, I am proud to say that despite the weather it was worth it. After all, it's not everyday that someone assumes you're with real estate company that is looking after the listing for the mill. One can only hope that under new ownership the mill will survive, to see another train.
