A bunch of us met at Hamilton West first thing in the morning as a way to meet eachother. We caught 11 trains there, 3 at Puslinch, 1 in Guelph, and 2 more at Killean over the course of the day, with the most interesting things being a new wide-gauge SD70 on a flatcar on GEXR #432 and KCS 4001 primer unit SD70ACe on CP #246 at Killean.
Bayview Junction, Ontario
(map) This is where the CN Oakville, CN Grimsby, and CN Dundas subdivisions meet at a great big wye, beside which is the CP Hamilton sub. This location encompasses CN Bayview Junction, Hamilton West, and Hamilton Junction.
CP #230 meets CN #399 at Hamilton West.
VIA #671 goes up Copetown grade.
CN #271 passes with an ex-BNSF FURX rental unit in second place.
AMTK #97 passes under the Laking Garden Bridge at Bayview.
CN #332 passes under the bridge at Bayview.
CN #421 heads down the Oakville sub toward Hamilton.
VIA #70 passes under the camera.
CN #422 heads toward Aldershot.
CN #276 passes with an equal number of engines and cars.
CN #385 starts up Copetown grade.
(map) This community straddles highway 401 from West of Guelph Junction to Killean on the CP Galt sub.
CP #243 follows #423 across the first crossing out of West switch Puslinch at 46.76 Galt sub with a CEFX and SOO unit.
CP #141 punches above its weight as it rushes empty autoframe cars back to St. Thomas.
(map) The city of Guelph is my home town and is just East of Kitchener-Waterloo on the GEXR Guelph sub, and the Ontario Southland Railway/Guelph Junction Railway track, the other end of which is at Guelph Junction.
GEXR #432 passes through Guelph station with an EMDX tarped unit on a KRL flat.
(map) This is CP's name for the passing track at Cambridge on the CP Galt sub.
CP #153 makes a lot of noise but not a lot of speed with two white SOO units by signal 505 Galt sub.
CP #246 passes mile 51.90 Galt sub with CP 8620-CP 8238-CEFX 1030-CP 9536-KCS 4001 primer-painted KCS SD70ACe for an interesting mix of power and a good conclusion to a 17-train day.
