A pair of RS18's make a triumphant return to the St. Thomas subdivision after a long hiatus. Running for the first time since return from the Guelph Junction Railway, the crew is crossing the CNR diamond at Carew with 28 cars. It is great that MLW's are returning in regular rotation to OSR in Salford and this was a real nice treat to hear the familiar growl of these 251's with a good sized train.

I am curious if this is the first time a pair did run since OSR took over the St. Thomas subdivision from CP in December 2009. To make this happen 183 would have had to have still been in service and it would have had to be paired with 182. 183 has been out of service a long time, and I do not recall seeing it operate on the St. Thomas sub.  Anyone have evidence to the contrary? The power move on September 30 does not count for this purpose.  What do you think? Thank you for all responses.
