It has been a long time since I have heard the sound of a pair of GP9U's working the Galt subdivision. After loosing CP's MLW fleet the GP9U's quickly became the second best thing, and have been deeply missed since their retirement. This location half way along Coakley siding is one of my favourite spots near Woodstock, and even though the location is on CP I only ever seem to catch OSR here. Thankfully OSR picked up a few GP9U's a few years ago so I don't have to travel too far to get my fix. The GP9U's look sharp in OSR paint, maybe even better the the CP paint they last wore. The pair are about to duck under the entrance to Pittock Conservation area as they head their train to the siding east of Coakley. From there they will return back to Woodstock to lift some cars and head for home.
