Just when you start getting sick of seeing the same CN GEVOs all the time, and start considering other hobbies, CN puts together a consist to keep things interesting.  Thanks to a timely heads up, I deviated from my normal route to work in an attempt to find a location to photograph 396.  Finding a glimmer of sunlight at Bethel Church Road, I waited.  Apparently the RTC was having switch issues at Paris, which held up 396 at Paris West and 149 at Hardy.  396 ended up crossing over in front of 148 at Hardy.  The delay was unfortunate for some, but led to the sun being much higher than I expected.  Considering I last saw an IC lead on the Dundas Sub. in the summer of 2018, it was exciting to see this consist to say the least.  Lets hope the trend continues!

  1. Crazy lashup!

  2. Great spot to catch this beauty of a train!

  3. Love the handwritten number board. Not Photoshopped? ;) Great catch..and on the way to work!

  4. @Brad: BCOL 4620 has had a crappy handmade number board for many years. This one appears to be new or improved over the previous handmade one. I’ll have to look at older photos. 4620 also sports a CN front door, so it’s a real eye catcher…
