RLHH 3049 slowly trundles north across the iconic bridgework over the Grand River at Caledonia, with its 1st trip of the day, hauling  five aged / renumbered ballast cars (NERX 134, 122 123, 136 and OWSX 250730) just as the sun sneaks a timely peak out from behind a few cloud formations. The entire main from Nanticoke to Simpson Junction is in the midst of receiving new ballast.  These 5 ballast cars were delivered to Hagersville by truck (OWS Railroad Construction & Maintenance, Petrolia) and deposited directly onto the rails of siding HD34.  Likewise ballast originating from Woodstock and even home town Rock City is trucked in and stock-piled adjacent to HD34. Each ballast train is trans loaded within 45 minutes, while snoozing on HD34, by RF Almas Co. Ltd (Hagersville) using a rugged CAT 1T286 Payloader.

  1. Great work Glenn!

  2. Nice shot! The “foam” in the water almost looks like ice.

  3. Awesome Glenn! I saw them headed back to Hagersville this morning and hoped someone would find them between Brantford and there!
