I got a text from a fellow railfan saying CP 254 was lined down the Hamilton sub. I had little to zero interest in going anywhere to see that same old same old. Unlike other times, this was a Monday so CP 254 usually goes down and back up the same day. Earlier in the day, BNSF 5479 was actually leading CP 244 which terminated so all thoughts of it coming were gone. I can hear CP254 blowing for the crossings at Emerald Lake and the Seventh concession and my grandson wanted to go see it. I get another text saying the BNSF is leading CP 254. Off we go and I know I have no chance to catch it on the Galt sub, so this spot, at this time of day is a beauty. Here BNSF 5479 with CP 8935 head down the Hamilton sub at mile 75.1 with a clearance to Welland. Fresh new ties, fresh new ballast and a slow order made this an easy chase down.
