A week or two before the Ontario Southland Railway took over operation of the CP St. Thomas Sub., I paid a visit to Woodstock to photograph the local CP action for the last time.  It's 8:38 a.m. and the sun is trying to peak through the clouds as the Woodstock based train was just getting started with CP 8211 and CP 8201.  As they were slowly heading over to the "yard" to start switching out their train, CP 8215 and CP 8252 flew past on the Galt Sub.  Perfect timing for a completely unplanned photo. Sometimes you just have to be there!
