An unusual Sunday brings both of Kitchener’s power sets being separated. 540 took the GMTX set to Guelph leaving 568 with the CN set to make their movement to Stratford and HCL with a D6 from Babcock and Wilcox for Bruce Power near Goderich. A quick heads up that they’re ready to leave Kitchener with the GTW 6226 up front made me quickly run out the door and beat them to a spot I know I wouldn’t miss them at which brings this. The sun is out partially and the ground is snowy giving a perfect photo combo for the GTW 6226 and CN 4028 as they pull over the large intersection at Foundry St and Snyder’s Rd in Baden with a clear signal and the generator on the tail end. It’s decently hard to see anything out of Kitchener that isn’t with a blue GMTX leaser but it could very well happen at any time depending on what’s needed and that’s what peaks my interest. The high headlight on this former DT&I unit was also a neat change to your usual Guelph Sub power.
