January 11th, 2004

We were going to go to a hobby shop in Burlington... We never did make it though. We caught 432 on the siding with 2 depressed-centre flatcars, and 85, the International, meeting there. The car we were in needed to be boosted. We changed cars and headed to Guelph Junction to see if there was anything there... there was. We caught 6 trains including a CWR unit train, in the span of about 2 hours, and there were more coming when we finally called it a day.

3 SD40-2s pull entirely too many cars up the escarpment. Coming around the corner to the East the train was hardly moving and even at the top of the hill right at the Junction the roar of the engines was earth-shaking.
