After Bill Thomson's post of the CN Display in Lindsay and since I have seen very few colour photos of CN's early diesel scheme - A light blinked in my 'ol brain and now I realise where Trillium's scheme, above, is inspired from. Interesting.. to say the least. Anyone have colour photos of this CN scheme in service? Please share :)
On one of my few trips to Trillium, the crew is busy shuffling Ethanol cars in WH Yard near Dain City and mother nature is ANGRY. I was in town only an hour - that's it, and I managed to shoot the Resolute Forest Products  switcher in Allanburg 40 minutes earlier in beautiful sun, what you see is a snowsquall seconds away form obliterating any view I thought I had - the further south I went, the angrier things got and it got so dark I could only pull off something with really low shutter speed, so I tried a pan - then the snow flied. I quickly turned back north to head toward Hamilton (and the sun) to get my wife, on the way along HWY 140 I managed to find the former Stelco (Atlas Steel) switcher at Welland Pipe (photo to come later). a really lucky short trip to Niagara. I remember my two winter Trillium trips in 2002/2003 which resulted in not much action - I did manage to get TR 110 on Film though - but that's it - this trip helped make up for it :)

  1. Interesting you can still see the noodle still sticking through the attempted cover up still today.

  2. Why did so few S-13′s survive yet the number of RS18′s, RS23′s seem to greatly outweigh them despite the sizeable roster CN kept well into the 1980′s at Spadina? Curious…
