A westbound with 5774 and one of the repainted QNSL’s, 5407 (plus another CP) in the trailing position, hammers across the CN Chatham Sub on it’s way to Windsor. The sweet evening light was perfect for westbound moves on both railways, at this location.

  1. were you eve pinched for trespassing at that spot Bruce ? you might be up there with Mooney for outstanding warrants :)

  2. Despite having to park the car on Dillon Road and walk in a half-mile, no, I was never bothered by anyone over the years. And I never expected to be accosted, not in an isolated location such as this, in the mid 1980s. I kept a lo-profile and didn’t do anything dumb like walk along the center of the rail, etc. Mind you I did climb up a signal mast or two, but only when the subject was within 45 seconds of my position.

  3. Out there, even today you probably wouldn’t be bothered if you weren’t on the right of way..

    Komoka – if you are standing in the same spot today it’s some guys backyard…. and he’s that close to the diamond also.. we had permission from him in 2003 or so.. if he’s still there probably would let you again!
