A side of railroading that most of us don't ever have to witness. A moderate ice storm swept through Sudbury overnight, followed by warm temperatures and a thick fog for good measure. CP crews are working to pump water out from switches in the yard, an important task before we returned to seasonal temperatures the following day and everything froze solid again. Based on the three-foot-deep snow I trudged through the day before, there's going to be a lot more pumping to come this year. Here, HCRY 913 gets ready to head west next to the waiting U52 (I thought I heard 52, but U55 is the job mostly working the yard so I'm doubting myself).Also of note, the left worker (never got his name) told me a story of a woman who had some sort of episode and drove a brand-new pickup through the yard, crashing into a couple of tank cars in two different locations before coming to a stop across and far up the tracks by the station. If you know any workers in Sudbury, get them to tell the story and show you photos some time. Hope she's doing alright.
