I was on my way after catching CN 327 with its usual CSX power at Les, Cedres and headed south to catch it at the lift bridge at Valleyfield. After a short drive I looked over while I was on the bridge and to my surprise saw a solo GP38-2 slowly pulling about a dozen or so cars south. I then stepped on the gas and started a chase.
Here I made it to a small farming town of Huntingdon where the tracks cut the small town in half. This would be the second to last spot as I headed back north for my original catch. To my dismay it had been delayed a couple hours by the "local". By the time it passed clouds had come over and a storm was approaching. Alas it was still a good surprise catch and chase.

  1. Nice composition. And the cloud cover works.

  2. Nice, not terribly easy to catch CSX locals around there.

  3. Thank fellas! Luck of the draw I suppose
