I was sitting in my usual spot waiting for an early CP 140 when my phone rang. Mr. Host informed me that CP 246 had a rebuilt CP 7006 leading. Well every other effort to get one of these rebuilds has ended up broke down, or trailing, so off I went to Guelph Junction. I shot CP 140 so I sat wondering where to get the CP 246 and I recalled looking at Arnold's picture earlier in the day. A few things changed with the "Guelph Junction" sign replaced by the "Campbellville" sign, the trees and foliage are a little higher and grown in and there are gates on the crossing just behind me but the spot is a very good shooting location.
CP 7006 with CP 3063 and CP 8608 pour the power on as they head south down the Hamilton sub for a stop at Kinnear.

  1. Easy now, Bill. He is overpaid and underworked. He will get around to it……….:o)

  2. Mr. Host should have finished his egg nog and rum by now Arnold. Ha. It sure looks like a time machine entry to me.

  3. Bill and nice photo. I tried ‘chasing’ to at least Campbellville Rd (In the old days, very easy if train was short enough) but now they have the higher speed track at the Jct – so he was already doing about 40 and mostly clear of the road by the time I got there. Decided chasing on the Hamilton will be futile so I went straight to Newman and chased in Hamilton instead to get my fill. At least I had the rest of the day off work to do it :)

  4. Yeah? I think you had better have someone else sample it first. :o 0

  5. Please, not yet. I need my egg nog first. Snakes bringin’ the rum

  6. Very nice, Bill. And now you can bother said Mr. Host about a time machine installment considering our combined photos span more than 20 years !!! :o )
