A surviving C40-8M takes the lead of the daily Mac Yard-Aldershot transfer as they waste no time through the CN Goreway control point on the Halton Sub. Seeing as the light was pretty much head on and I was working with a tight shot, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.

  1. FYI “control point” is a term used south of the border and is not featured in the CROR.
    This would be a “Controlled Location” by CROR standards.
    There is a “Controlled Point” in the CROR that is defined as “A signal location in CTC consisting of controlled signal(s) in one direction only”.

  2. @mattwatson thanks for the info. I’m kind of just calling it a control point because it’s a common railfan term for any RTC controlled location, wasn’t really attempting to be specific to CROR but I always appreciate info regardless.

  3. I hear you. By the way, good call including the station name sign.
