After catching the final “Cayuga Clipper” train yesterday (April 30), I thought I would probably be done with trains for at least a few days as that was a huge outing for myself and my dad. Little did I know that the next day, CP would run a GREX Ballast train down from Sudbury with 2 classic multimark SD40s as well as an SD30 for good measure. Of course, after waking up and hearing about this, I stuffed some food in me and highballed it on my bike towards Leaside. I got there with around half an hour to spare, and was able to get a decent enough shot considering the amount of backlighting. I’ll always go out for a pair of SD40s, no matter what train they’re on, but this train was especially nice to see as they had a good 30ish cars of manifest to go along with the ballast train which for some odd reason was an even more special treat to me, I guess it shows that despite their age, these engines are still up for any task.

  1. Great catch Liam! Love the angle in which you decided to shoot this train.
