Earlier in 2015, CP's London Pickup encountered an issue and derailed in the Guelph Junction Railway Yard, chewing up a few hundred feet of track. The unit that was involved in the derailment was parked at the Junction and it got new combos. Presumably these are what was taken out as it sat here for a few weeks before being taken away. I was at the Junction for something else, but not before CP 142 rolled by on a mostly cloudy morning... and I got lucky with the sun thank goodness. Regulars know this simply as what Guelph Junction was, but anyone fairly new to the hobby will notice the absolute lack of concrete barriers that CP put up later that decade making scenes like this basically impossible now.

  1. Nice beefy lash up on that one ! BTW, I think that would’ve been 143 (?) :-)

  2. Does CP still have any of the CEFX leased units?

  3. Yes correct 143. No the CEFX were all returned.

  4. also when the CP derailment happened on GJR property that was the last time CP was allowed in GJR yard.
