This train had quite the adventure today as the oversized CP 133 with CP 8727 and CP 9767 stalled out heading up the grade on the approach to Guelph Line. In the mean time, the crew ran out of hours and would have to wait several hours for a recrew from Toronto. The train was tied down for the crew change. The power for CP 135 was dispatched from Toronto to give them a final push up the hill. Here, the new crew has arrived and are passing on the needed information to get this train rolling. It would be about another 45 minutes to get the remainder of the brakes released and the air pressure up and off they went.
