A Lucky CN Shot
This past weekend, I was travelling on Highway 401 when I happened to pass a fast moving CN freight (I later learned that it was train 372) at Whitby. What really caught my eye was the second locomotive, CN 1433, a GMD1u. The locomotives were once common, especially in the Prairies, but have disappeared in recent years. This was a real treat as I had never seen one before and it showed the advantage of being a passenger in a car - you have safe access to your camera!
Earlier in the day, I stopped by the CP Toronto Yard to see if the strike backlog was being cleared. The yard was very full, but there wasn't much activity except for a few switchers.
