Probably my favourite catch on NS trains 327 / 328 from all the ones I saw. The later years of NS operations in Southern Ontario found a lot of foreign power kicking around. At the time I believe there were only 2 CNW painted Dash-9's left on UP's roster, so when word got out that the previous days 327 had this consist, I prayed the CNW would lead 328 the next day. As luck would have it things worked out as I caught it heading around the "cow path" at Hamilton West, and a lot of railfans headed out this day.

  1. This one and another one escaped the paint booth for ages. I believe, they were yanked out of the Illinois Railway Museum where they had been stored, and off to to the paintbooth.

    Correct me if I’m wrong.

  2. That sounds like the story I heard as well.

  3. Caught this one at Grimsby. I agree it is one of the better catches. And I do recall thinking there would be a lot of people out for it, so stayed close to home, where I would have the scene all to myself. :o )

  4. This same one led in Montreal in 2015 on CN 529.
