Trillium 1859 is about to switch onto the Thorold Spur after spending an afternoon servicing various places in St Catharines. It's going to head down the Thorold Spur, where it'll unload it's cars in Welland and call it a day.

  1. A helpful tip you can always pick them up asking CN for clearence to cross the Grimbs Sub on the scanner, and it takes a good 15-20 minutes for them to give it

  2. Sweet. Maybe I need to set up a motion sensor camera or something. Haha.

  3. If you hadn’t seen it, then it is rare ;)

  4. All those years I lived in St. Catharines and I did not get to see anyone switch that chemical place on Welland Av either. They must “sneak” in. :o )

  5. The Chemical plant is rarely serviced and I really have no idea. I’ve seen trains return with tank cars but I’ve never actually seen it there. One day I hope to.

    On a usual day, Trillium will arrive to the junction around 12:30-1:00. It will go down the Grantham Spur to service whatever places that are down there off of Westchester and is back at the junction by 2:30 and leaves around 3. Now granted, it’s been a bit later recently once in a while but this is on average of most times I’ve seen it.

  6. Another deece Trillium shot. Do you perhaps know when Trillium usually runs? I have been lost on when it usually happens, even though I live in the area. I have yet to see Trillium switch Kemira Chemicals on Welland Avenue as well.

  7. Thanks guys! I try to photograph the line when I can for that reason.

  8. Awesome shot from a small railway that isn’t photographed enough!

  9. Great shot Docta!
