If you missed CP on the St. Thomas Subdivision in 2009 or earlier, this is your next closest thing, they look CP, GP9's were every day assignments on the line, so you can't get  more back to the future than this on the St. Thomas Sub. A rare Saturday extra for OSR meant I spent the morning chasing this St. Thomas job capturing photos like it was 2004 all over again. This scene at Ferguson line is one of my favourites.

  1. Two things: osr was moving propane to dealers for winter corn drying which keeps the line busy all winter long.

    Secondly what the heck is growing at right in November????

  2. Winter wheat likely

  3. It is sowed the season before and germinates in the fall and overwinters for next season
