Sometimes things sneak up on you when you least expect it and this was one of them. I heard CP 244 with BNSF 7694 get cleared through a foreman at Galt so off I went to the 7th concession. I got my shot and the cloud of snow blew upon me so I turned away. After the initial blast I started to head back to the car and out of the snow came a flash of orange. I scooted back and caught the unexpected dpu, BNSF 9161 as it headed away into the mist. CP 244 has been rather good to us the last few days sporting pumpkins on the lead two days in a row.

  1. Excellent buddy

  2. With BNSF 8469 leading CP 2-240, CP is on a 3 day streak of BNSF leaders!

  3. Thanks Curtis
    We’ll all take the foreign power. Makes for a nice change.
