it was good while it lasted, but for a brief period four "zebra" striped units were assigned to Kitchener and on occasion all four were lashed up together. With less than an hour of sun left, L568 has departed Kitchener rather late and the quartet of 4 axle power sounds quite good accelerating out of Kitchener with a loaded train of potash and grain.

BTW: For anyone reading this - let's do Amtrak Day in celebration of its 50th anniversary May 1'st. Sharpen your scanners, we'd love to see some oldies too!

  1. Boy, you feel right at home with views like this. :-)
    Even the train is easy on the eyes, nice assortment of car types with no graffiti.

  2. Love this angle, good to see more documentation of this set. Nicely done

  3. Thanks Liam. This is a popular spot for fans but 50/50 if you beat em here from the station or yard. A fast train will kick yer butt and a heavy freight like this meant I had time to pull the tripod and do a video :)

    This was like 50 cars.

  4. Nice. Of the four units, 4131 was still here as of this week.

  5. I guess it hasn’t hit time for 92 day inspection???

  6. Neat shot!

    4131 is going back to Mac on 533 tonight

  7. Can’t wait for a few months stint back up on the Guelph Sub :)
