OSR 1401 and 1594 (I think? or is it 1620? I forget which is paired with 1401) pass through Belmont hours later than the usual time. My guess would be they made a run to Aylmer today? Some background on this shot: I was sitting in the living room when I heard a familiar horn at an unusual time, would I make it to the tracks? Quickly I got my camera and the race was on! I ran across a field to the tracks, beating it by about 20 seconds. A quick check for exposure was all I had time for before I started shooting, this is the result.

  1. Was 1620! I missed it in St. Thomas, finally caught up to it in Belmont and chased to a few more crossings

  2. Good job racing out and getting this great photo!

  3. Excellent Iain. Been seeing a lot of 1401′s lately, this one is a dandy. She will still be riding the rails in the weeks to come. The other 1401 (sadly) will be waiting for the next special occasion to travel the tracks again.
    Glad you made the effort to go and catch her. :-)
