Although not the most head turning power, or trailing cars, a massive 6 car 402 crosses the Grand with warm weather coming. Spring is almost here everyone!

  1. Great place for photos with no handrails on the bridge. Nice clear photos like this one. :-)
    Good work Carson, perfect sized train.

  2. I wonder if a train that size consistently is worth a rethink? I love the CN 6 axles on short locals..even though is not a local. Great shot!

  3. I doubt the small trains last long. Weren’t some 581s 100+ cars? From what I understand, Esso had converted all of their railcar loading for trucks while the line was severed. I can’t imagine converting it all back is like flipping a light switch. It will surely take time. Same with Stelco – they had been trucking coils to Hamilton for loading, with Stelco here being notably busy while the line to Nanticoke was severed. Even still this week, I have seen several sizeable trains of empty coils for Stelco. So they too may be in a period of transition and readjustment for rail for Nanticoke. Give it time.

  4. Thanks James. Guess I was jumping the gun on that one! :)

  5. Today it ran with zero (0) cars. Hopefully CN and Imperial Oil get things sorted out soon!

  6. Beautiful scene crossing the Grand !
