As I said in a comment on Rob's shot of a UP SD70 in Kinnear, things sure have been interesting the past few months on the Hamilton Sub with the substantial increase in seasonal slab traffic this year. Been quite a few extras (2-255s, T50s, and extra yard jobs) as a result, and lots of mainline freight appearances in Aberdeen again too. Basically doing whatever they can to keep cars moving with limited space around here. The most recent example of all of this was these two NS units, which first appeared as a 2-255 from Buffalo on April 7 before running to Welland the following morning as T50 with 50 slab empties. Somehow these were reported traced as being at Wolverton despite never having left Hamilton - another oddity and head scratcher in the slab saga. They stuck around and made another appearance in Kinnear before returning to NS on Saturday's 254.

  1. Nice!

  2. Do you work in IT? You’re starting to remind me of someone else who always seems to manage to catch everything good running.
