CP had kind of a tough day. Cold with blowing snow is a nightmare in the yard. 15-20 minutes to clean out a switch and Mother Nature fills it back up in 5. It's exhausting. Several regular trains never got out of the yard


But it also looks nice. 141 usually goes through Galt around 3am. By 10am today, it had made it to Milton and the crew had run out of hours. So it sat for 6 hours because getting a new crew from Scarborough to Milton would also be a challenge with the roads in these conditions. But with the last light of the day, one of CP's grubbiest coal-hauling warriors throw up a lot of snow as it re-joins its trip to Chicago.
