I was headed to get my grandson from school and was stopped at the red light at Watson road and York when across the street the railroad signals started flashing. I jumped out the car and grabbed the camera and around the bend came this guy.  CN 9450 with CN 4908 and CN 4906 flying by was a nice surprise because at 2:30pm there is usually nothing to be found. A little luck never hurts.

  1. I like when opportunities like that happen. Good shot.

  2. Great catch. Dreary day. But thats usually the way.

  3. Looks like a 540 going to Acton.

  4. Thank you guys.
    I thought it was 540 but have learned its better to write nothing than to guess and be wrong
