The crew of the day Woodstock yard is rolling through the empty farm fields of Middlesex County on a gorgeous Spring day. GP9u's CP 8201 and STLH 8245 are (timetable) eastbound with 4 loaded frame cars ex Formet in St Thomas destined for the Oshawa GM plant. Bringing up the rear is a hopper destined for Putnam which has been towed the length of the line and back. The crew will set it off and lift five before returning to Woodstock.

  1. As I stared at this… I’m thinking Dave did you meet up with me for this? Seeing that we did trips together and talked on IRC daily at the time – But no!

    I shot it 3/19/2009 with 8245 leading 8201 – which was a weekend as I was chasing with my then 1.5 year old as my wife shopped in London. And I didn’t remember chasing with anyone.

    Great shot and great location!

  2. Very cool, Dave. Love that hopper – completes the scene.

  3. Great photo David.
