CSXT Y120 is heading south on the Sarnia Sub and if you look to the rear of the train, sporting a Caboose (CSXT 900074). Note that 2561 has been outfit with Remote Control hardware (Antennae, remote warning stickers on nose, strobes, etc) but on this day the crew is running Conventional. A small detail easily overlooked - notice the slight red signal on the pole at the right of track? From the CSX Canadian District Timetable No 2 (1999) - "Northward trains approaching Sarnia that observe a Gyraline signal illuminated red, near CEA 69.0 must stop train clear of highway 40 overpass until gyralite light is extinguished, this signal indicates a possible dangerous commodities emergency"

  1. Yes, if I was to ballpark current ops it would be up to 3 jobs per day – day and night switch jobs, the ransfer (which now tends to be rolled into switch job) and once or twice a week runs to dresden and wallaceburg as required.

    Weekends are quiet only one day job, operating switches and transfer, departs the depot at 0830. Night jobs are on duty about 1750.

  2. Do they usually operate 7 days a week? I have never shot them in Sarnia.
