These days, Rusholme Siding usually only sees storage cars or any trains entering feeder at the North crossovers so this was something I have been meaning to catch for quite some time. 

The previous day, 238 and 236 were both in the yard when they encountered an issue with a tree over the rails. The time taken to remove the tree and inspect the track to ensure it was safe enough to use, also took the time that CN had planned for both of these trains to show up on their side. By the time both these trains were ready to blast off to the states, CN wouldn't take them due to the fact CSX wouldn't take them. CN doesn't want these trains tied up at Fort Erie. 

With room for only one train at Welland, the yardmaster had decided that 236 would tie down on the CASO for the night and 238 would make their way down to Rusholme Siding for the night since there was no cars in storage at this time. The next day, as seen in the photo above, 238 began shoving their train up through the North Crossovers and back into the yard before finally taking of for the border sometime after.

  1. Neat. They did similar a number of times last winter during the height of the slab chaos. Putting entire trains into Rusholme. Was empty at the time though. The racks in it currently complicate things a bit!

  2. Sorry, thought this was more recent. I see it was empty at the time!

  3. Indeed it was and they were lucky it was empty because they fit nowhere else. I believe they pulled through just passed tunnel in order to clear the main.
