We went to Paris for the day and saw as many other railfans as trains. In 9 hours at the tracks only 2 trains had only CN power out of around 16, though 5 were passenger trains, giving us a pretty eclectic mix of foreign power.
(map) Paris is just West of Brantford on the CN Dundas sub and was once the site of the junction between the Dundas sub and the completely defunct Drumbo sub that connected Paris and Stratford. There's also a large trestle in Paris.
NS #328 comes out of thick fog with an SD70M-2 on point.
CN #392 comes to a stop to let VIA #70 pass.
CN #392 follows VIA #70 out of Paris Junction.
VIA #671 comes out of the fog and heads West.
CN #396 passes with its contribution of foreign power.
NS #327 passes with 3 units and 14 cars.
CN #399 heads through Paris Junction with a BNSF straight SD40 trailing.
CN #271 marks the passing of the fog with a UP trailing.
CN #331 passes as the first of only 2 CN trains today with no foreign power.
VIA #72 zips by.
VIA #73 heads West.
CN #385 passes with a Grand Trunk GP9 trailing.
CN #148 celebrates Foreign Power Awareness Week with 2 BNSF units.
CN #398 passes with ICG 100237 behind the engines, a flatcar sporting locomotive trucks apparently designed to carry heavy loads relating to locomotives.
CN #393 offers our complementary foreign leader for the day with two pumpkins elephant style.
VIA #76 wraps the day up for us with the same train set at the morning's #71.
