We picked up Kevin and went to a railfan-heavy Paris Junction for the day, catching 16 trains. Night train CN #395 with a new crew was first up with three BNSF units, followed by VIA #70, CN #399, VIA #671, CN #398, VIA #72, CN #390, #331, VIA #73, CN #148, #385, #392, #330, #393, VIA #76, and CN #435.
(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.
CN #395 passes through Aldershot with 3 BNSF units, each in a different paint scheme.
CN #399 comes to a stop to work Paris West.
VIA #671 zips around CN #399.
CN #398 passes through.
VIA #72 passes zips by.
CN #390 follows VIA #72 through toward Brantford.
CN #331 passes through, finding a stop signal at Paris West and discovering at the last moment that they had work to do at Paris.
VIA #73 passes with VIA 6416, two trainsets, and VIA 6403, the CBC unit.
CN #148 slowly goes through with CN #331's conductor, giving him a ride back to "the box" to pick up his new paperwork.
CN #392 passes CN #385 in front of us.
VIA #76 heads for Brantford.
CN #435 enters Paris Junction as the light transitions to the far side of the tracks.
