A very late return for the mixed train. Typically coming home late Tuesday/early Wednesday, it is seen here returning at 16:15 on Thursday. The wye at Waterways only turns one unit, which leads to natural hat tricks of units on the return trip. In just a few more miles they will enjoy sunshine the rest of the way, as the edge of the storm is just above us. Not to often did you see the class lights lit up on GP9's.

  1. Now THATs a beauty!!! Great lighting, too.

  2. Thank you very much Arnold.
    This is from the same roll of 25asa film that I shot the 5580 with. It is incredible film, wish I had used more often now. Glad I had it in the camera for this moment. :-)

  3. Oh stunning, alright; but very limited. A nice day or else!! :o ) Hard to find grain in that stuff.

  4. Just amazing, really incredible

  5. Thanks Mr. Klaucker.
    I was noticing the 4253 has a somewhat larger CN noodle on the nose than the other 2 units.

  6. Great stuff. Never tire of these kind of scenes.

  7. Thanks Jamie. :-)
