This shot was a lucky sequence of events, to say the least. Two Trillium jobs were running on these day: 340 originally went down to Port Colborne, and 108 was on the Verbio job. 340 was to spot ADM all day, but it turned out its air conditioner made it such that it did not fit. So they trundled back up towards Dain City, and swapped power with the Verbio crew (who then took 340 back to Feeder so modifications could be made and they picked up 1859) and took 108 down to ADM. I ran into the Verbio crew around WH Yard and they let me know that 108 was down at ADM, so off to Port Colborne I went for a stakeout. ADM is configured such that three cars can be unloaded at a time, so after an hour and a half or so of painful and sparse scanner chatter such as "5 feet, ok stop 108" they finally emerged to drop the empties in the small yard nearby and grabbed a few more loads to drag back in. Grain is busy down in Port Colborne at the moment - have seen a lot of grain cars head to the area on CN 421 (and interchanged on 562) and CP is supposed to have a few units trains' worth over the course of the winter for Trillium as well.

  1. When I submitted this I’d neglected to realize Arnold had just posted a shot from many years prior of 108 in Port Colborne on it’s way to ADM, seen here: http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=44550
