Positioned at Hamilton West this overcast winters day, CN 9531 and companion have come out of Aldershot Yard to the east, and are waiting on an approaching westbound. Due to some fussy motive power, it may or may not need an assist climbing the escarpment to Copetown, so the RTC is setting things up to keep potential delays to a minimum. As I'm scouting angles to cover this, CN #328 unexpectedly appears and slips down the Cowpath into Hamilton with SOO 6037 & 6056.

Not to leave you hanging, the westbound made it to Copetown unassisted.
